Due December 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.

For its 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 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.

CGAP requests that the photographer follows the widely recognized standards and ethical guidance for development photography and obtains informed consent whenever reasonably possible from any subjects photographed.

Entries must:
 *Be the original work of the entrant and shot in the last two years
 *Treat all subjects with respect and dignity.
 *Respect the rights, sensitivities, and culture of communities and/or persons depicted, including the subject's right to consent to being photographed.
 *Fairly represent the situation, subject’s identity and physical location of the image, without alteration (other than standard photographic techniques for optimization, including removal of dust, cropping, adjustments to color and contrast, etc.)

Entries should be no more than 45 seconds in length.
