Participate to the "African urban visions" contest


Highlighting the talent of change agents in African cities

The ACL platform offers several MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), taught by African experts, all covering aspects of urban planning.

This innovative training space generates a dynamic and creative learning community, which the African Cities Lab wishes to highlight by launching the "African Urban Visions" contest.

The contest

Its aim is to catalyze the ingenuity and creativity of those involved in Africa's urban fabric, by inviting participants to capture the best of urban innovation and transformation at the very heart of their city, and to share their vision through the prism of a photograph or short video.
Urban photography

Capture the essence of a vision of the African city in transformation with a powerful image.

Creative video

Create a short "real-life" video (maximum 90 seconds) that illustrates an immersive story of the African city in transformation.
