Entry fee: Free
Prizes: participation in the exhibitions

The CAP Prize, the International Prize for Contemporary African Photography is awarded annually to five outstanding photogrpahers.

Prepare your work that engages with the African continent or its diaspora now and win a series of large scale outdoor exhibitions around the globe.

Projects eligible for the CAP Prize must contain between 10 and 25 images.

There is no theme. Photographs must have been taken in an African country or deal with a diaspora of an African country. The emphasis of the competition is on image sequences. Images must work together as a whole. We are NOT looking for single images.

You can enter as many projects as you like.

A panel of international curators, publishers, editors and artists will review your work.

25 artists will be shortlisted and five short listed artists awarded with the CAP Prize 2020.

The winners will be announced at Photo Basel International Art Fair in June 2020.


The call for entries to the CAP Prize 2020 is open from 7 November 2019 until 7 February 2020.
