HOW TO ENTER

1. Take photos!

This is the fun part! You can enter media (photos, video clips or audio files) that covers the theme of people, vehicles, animals and infrastructure that help to move people, goods, animals and things across Africa. Think rare and unusual ways of looking at those items we might take for granted around us.

2. Select the best!

Your media could go onto Wikipedia to illustrate an article. Choose photos and media where the subject matter is clear and in focus.
