Thank you to all who entered the Mkapa Awards. During the past two years, NBP has been working in collaboration with African Wildlife Foundation to display winners of the international competition which has culminated in several photo exhibitions, first in Africa, then England and Asia, and now across the United States. We are not accepting further entries at this time.
What separates the Mkapa Photo Awards from other photo competitions is our core commitment to conservation through categories specific to topics of concern in modern Africa. The photos and videos - and the stories they reveal - bring global focus on Africa's wildlife challenges and how to address them, as well as the many benefits and passion for the wild they instill.
The second year winners of the Mkapa Awards were presented at Nairobi National Museum in Kenya and displayed from Oct. 2022 to Feb. 2023. A selection of finalists (above) were then shown at the Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach, Florida from April 26 - June 4. The exhibition traveled to the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, California, and ran from rom July 14 - Oct. 9. The photos and videos are now hosted at the National Museum of Wildlife Art (below) in Jackson, Wyoming, through April 21, 2024.
