The Young Photographer Award is an educational award geared towards passionate emerging photographers looking to cultivate a career in documentary photography or photojournalism. The winner of the competition receives a DSLR camera and, together with the runners-up, gets an opportunity to participate in an intensive Mentorship Programme. The programme is designed to give young photographers a chance to learn more about photography with our bootcamp course as well as developing a documentary photography project under the guidance of an industry professional. The photographic outcomes of the mentees are exhibited in Kampala.

The winner of YPA will take home CANON M50 MK II and TS 3140 printer, an opportunity to participate in the 2023 Emerging Photographer Mentorship Programme as well as other prizes.
