Traveling Exhibition

Thank you to all who entered the Mkapa Awards during the past two years to "Bring Africa to the World, and the World to Africa." NBP has worked in collaboration with African Wildlife Foundation to support their conservation programs and display winners of the international competition which culminated in photo exhibitions and events, first in Africa, then England, Canada, and Asia, and now traveling across the United States.

We are not accepting further Mkapa Awards entries at this time, but images of African species and places should be entered in the NBP International Awards.

What separates the Mkapa Awards from other photo competitions is NBP's core commitment to conservation through topics of concern in modern Africa. The photos and videos - and the stories they have revealed - 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 first 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 July 14 - Oct. 9.

The photos and videos were then hosted at the National Museum of Wildlife Art (below) in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, from Nov. 2023 - April 21, 2024. The exhibition is now on its way to the the Hurleyville Performing Arts Centre, 219 Main Street, Hurleyville, New York 12747 in the heart of the Catskill mountains, two hours north of New York City. The exhibition will open with a reception on Wednesday, June 5th from 6:00-8:30pm.
