eLearning Africa launches the annual “Through your Lens” Photo Competition


The eLearning Africa “Through your Lens” Photo Competition is back this year for its sixth edition, promoted by the eLearning Africa 2015 conference. Under the theme of “Digital Africa: ICTs enriching communities”, budding photographers are invited to submit pictures depicting how ICTs are improving relationships between family, group or country members in Africa. eLearning and photography enthusiasts from across Africa and the rest of the world have the chance to share their view of ICT in Africa.

Contributions from all sectors and walks of life are welcome. Photos can be submitted via the eLearning Africa “Through your Lens” Facebook application from now until May 1st 2015, and they should be accompanied by a brief description outlining the inspiration behind their idea. Three winners will be picked by the public vote and one by an expert panel of judges. Prizes include a tablet, a smartphone and a digital camera. Participation is free and a selection of the submitted photos, including the winners, will feature in an exhibition at this year’s eLearning Africa conference.

This photo competition is organised by eLearning Africa, 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 10th year, eLearning Africa 2015 will be taking place from May 20 – 22, 2015, at the African Union Headquarters, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

All eligible photos submitted to the competition can be viewed and voted for via the dedicated Facebook application or by visiting the website.
