The Africa Centre is thrilled to partner with African Women on Board (AWB), in association with Africa Soft Power (ASP) to host a series of international exhibitions on the works of this year’s inaugural Climate Photo Essay Prize.

The Prize is aimed at young people aged 18-30 based in Africa or from the global African diaspora community. Leading figures from the art world have been appointed to judge the contest, with finalists going on to have their work exhibited at leading galleries across New York, London, and Lagos.

The exhibition at The Africa Centre will take place during Frieze Week, in October 2023. Other partner organisations include The Africa Center, New York.

Oba Nsugbe, Chair of the Board of Trustees, The Africa Centre, London, said: “The Photo Essay Prize exhibition at the Africa Centre, London showcases the power of art to inspire us all. At a time when conversations about climate change are more urgent than ever, it represents an important opportunity to foster meaningful discussions that transcend borders and elevate the voices of creatives from Africa and the global diaspora community. This exhibition is an exciting moment in our burgeoning relationship with Africa Soft Power.”
