Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP) 13th annual Photo and Video Contest 2018: Picturing Financial Inclusion in Africa (Win a 2,000 Gift Certificate)

Date limite de soumission: Décembre 14th 2018

Africa is a center for financial innovation, home to M-Pesa, the mobile money service launched a decade ago that has revolutionized digital financial services and helped lift many thousands of households from poverty. Africa also is the continent with the largest number of people living in extreme poverty, and many lack the financial tools that could help improve their lives.

Pour son 13th annual contest, CGAP is looking for striking photographs and short videos that tell the story of how financial services empower poor people and communities in Africa. Show us how financial services expand opportunities for poor people in Africa and enable people to build sustainable livelihoods.

An expert panel of judges will award prizes for vivid, memorable work that shows why financial inclusion matters.
