eLearning Africa Photo Competition

The eLearning Africa “Through your Lens” Photo Competition is back this year in its fifth edition. Under the theme of “Social Africa: building bridges through ICT”, budding photographers are invited to submit snapshots depicting how ICT is enhancing the way individuals and communities in Africa live, learn, cooperate and connect.

Contributions from all sectors and walks of life are welcome. The photo should show how communication tools and information technologies can build bridges and foster relationships between people and be accompanied by a brief description outlining the inspiration behind their idea.

Photos can be submitted via the eLearning Africa “Through your Lens” Facebook application from now until April 14th 2014. eLearning and photography enthusiasts from across Africa and the rest of the world have the chance to share their view of ICT in Africa. The winners will be picked by an expert panel of judges and a public vote, and prizes include a tablet pca digital camera and an mp3 player. Participation is free and a selection of the submitted photos will feature in an exhibition at this year’s eLearning Africa conference.

This photo competition is organised by eLearning Africa 2014, the largest and most comprehensive event for ICT-enhanced education and training in Africa, enabling participants to develop multinational and cross-industry contacts and partnerships, as well as to enhance their knowledge, expertise and abilities. Now in its 9th year, the eLearning Africa conference will be taking place from May 28th – 30th 2014 in Kampala, Uganda.
