The Wilderness Safaris Photographic Competition (WSPC) is open to all photographers who travelled to the African continent.
To journey into the wild, remote places of Africa is to connect to its soul. To be truly moved. It is for this reason that we describe our journeys as life-changing. Our purpose, through these journeys, is to inspire positive action that helps to conserve and restore Africa’s wilderness and wildlife.
Our photographic competition Capture the Soul of Africa sets out to harness images that capture this spirit. Images with soul. Images that move. Images that inspire people to positive action.
Entry dates: 01 – 30 September
With fantastic prizes on offer, and a world-class judging panel, the competition is your chance to showcase the wonders and abundance of Africa, and, with each entry submitted, raise funds for a number of incredible conservation and community initiatives.
Entries are not limited to Wilderness Safaris areas; instead, we invite you to submit any of your favourite images taken anywhere in Africa. Non-Africa imagery will not be eligible for prizes.
