The call for entries to the CAP Prize 2018 is open from 7 November 2017 until 7 February 2018. Enter your work that engages with the African continent or its diaspora now and win a series of large scale outdoor exhibitions around the globe. 25 international curators, publishers, editors and artists will review your work. 25 artists will be shortlisted and five short listed artists awarded with the CAP Prize 2018.
The CAP Prize consists of global exposure at major international photography exhibitions and is awarded during the Image Afrique Festival in Basel, Switzerland. The CAP Prize winners exhibition was previously on show at LagosPhoto Festival in Nigeria, at FIFCV Festival Internacional de Fotografia de Cabo Verde or Eyes On – European Month of Photography in Vienna just to name a few. The five CAP Prize winners are invited to the main exhibition at the Image Afrique Festival and will spend one week in Basel during Art Basel, all costs covered. A catalog documenting the five winners works will be published in time for the award ceremony.
Each of the five awardees have the chance to be featured by many of our media partners.
In a nutshell: CAP Prize raises the winners’ international exposure and builds a high level network for future projects.
