About Us

What is it?

The Uganda Press Photo Award is a platform for people interested in photography and seeking to record the visual history of this country, to showcase their craft. These are hardworking Ugandans who sometimes take great risk so the rest of us can stay informed about what is happening.

The award aims to promote the best of today’s photojournalism in Uganda as well as encouraging a new generation of photographers. It also seeks to remind the viewing public of the importance of a vibrant press for democratic development.

Conceived by the Foreign Correspondents’ Association of Uganda and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung.

What’s in it for you?

The winner of the main prize, the Uganda Press Photo of the Year Award, receives a CANON sponsored EOS 7D MARK II DSLR camera. A prize we hope can provide them with the right tools, enabling them to continue their work and hone their skills.

We also offer support to other participants who win in the different categories with prizes that we believe can lighten their load as photojournalists.

There are also photography workshops organized through the year with the support of the Foreign Correspondents’ Association of Uganda, with members who are internationally recognized photographers, offering to take on the trainings.

We also offer portfolio reviews, film screenings and discussions on subject matter pertinent to growth of the craft.

With our catalogue of established as well as up and coming photojournalists, we hope to bridge the gap between the photographers and those in need of people with their skill set.
