Shoot to make a difference

07 December 2017

KENYA: The Maasai Mara is a majestic place. It hosts one of the most well-known wildlife phenomena, the Great Migration, but it is far greater than this one spectacle, and we are incredibly excited to tell you about The Greatest Maasai Mara photographer of the year competition. Welcoming keen photographers of all ages, all skill levels, and from all over the world to take part, this opportunity is pure gold.

  • WHO — ANGAMA MARA's Angama Foundation is the organiser and welcomes photos taken in the Maasai Mara by anyone, staying anywhere. Entrants do not have to stay at Angama Mara to participate.
  • HOW — There is an entry fee of $20 per photo, fully donated to a conservation partner of choice (easy step-by-step instructions on The Greatest Maasai Mara website). Entries will be judged per month and the main prize will go to one of the 10 monthly winners.
  • WHEN — The competition runs from 1 January 2018 to 31 October 2018 and photographs must be taken within 1 year before entry. The winner will be notified by 25 December 2018.
  • WHAT — The winner receives a cash prize of US$10,000, and an all-expenses paid 5-night safari for two at ANGAMA MARA (with return flights between Nairobi and the Mara). Their guide wins a brand new soft-top Suzuki Maruti Gypsy. Yes, it's true.
  • WHY — the competition will profile this remarkable game reserve through beautiful imagery, and also positively impact the local projects through the entry fees.
Full details are on The Greatest Maasai Mara website, and we encourage you to get behind this initiative that will make a real and lasting difference to the land, its wildlife and its people.
