The fifth eLearning Africa Through your Lens photo competition focuses on the theme: Social Africa: Building bridges through ICT.
The competition is organized by eLearning Africa 2014, the largest and most comprehensive event for ICT-enhanced education and training in Africa. The event helps participants develop multinational and cross-industry contacts and partnerships, and enhance their knowledge, expertise and abilities.
Budding photographers are invited to submit snapshots depicting how Information and Communication Technologies, or ICTs, are enhancing the way individuals and communities in Africa live, learn, cooperate and connect. Photographs should show how ICTs can build bridges and foster relationships between people. Photos should be accompanied by a brief description outlining the inspiration behind the image.
Contributors from all sectors and walks of life, from across Africa and the rest of the world, are welcome to share their view of ICTs in Africa. Photos can be submitted via the eLearning Africa Through your Lens Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/eLearning-Africa/410699252298030?id=410699252298030&sk=app_244041225639079.
