This exhibition showcases the winning entries of the 2nd Annual Benjamin Mkapa African Wildlife Photography Awards, a collaboration between the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) and Nature’s Best Photography (NBP). The Mkapa Awards global competition attracts photographers at all levels of expertise who advocate for wildlife conservation.
The winners of the 2nd annual photographic competition were revealed at the end of October 2022, at the Nairobi National Museum in Kenya, after which the exhibition will travel to museums around the world. AWF and NBP hope the exhibition will bring immediate and long-lasting impact to public understanding and stewardship of nature in Africa.
Founded in 1961, AWF is the only African global conservation organization protecting wildlife and their ecosystems as an essential part of a modern and prosperous Africa. NBP was established in 1995 to inspire, educate, and motivate conservation of the natural world through the art of photography. To learn more, please visit awf.org and naturesbestphotography.org.
The Benjamin Mkapa African Wildlife Photography Awards is organized by the African Wildlife Foundation and Nature’s Best Photography, and named in honor of one of Africa’s most beloved leaders and conservation champions, H.E. Benjamin Mkapa (1938–2020), to engage global audiences in conserving wildlife and wild lands in modern Africa.
