Nature’s Best Photography Africa 2017




As the exclusive camera partner to this prestigious event, Nikon in South Africa is proud to announce that Cape Town visitors and residents will once again be treated to an annual exhibition of breath-taking, African focused photographs coordinated by Nature’s Best Photography Africa and Iziko Museums of South Africa.

The exhibition featuring a total of 75 award winning photographs that were taken in Africa by global photographers will run at the Iziko SA Museum from 8th November until the 4th of March 2018.

An expert panel of local and international judges, considered thousands of images to select the winners. The winners competed for prizes made up of photographic safaris to some of Africa’s richest wildlife regions with a combined value in excess of R1 million. This is the largest prize value of any nature photography competition in the world and is made possible by the kind support of & Beyond, Chobe Safari Lodge and CNP Safari’s.

The exhibition aims to foster a love for and desire to protect the natural resources of Africa amongst all segments of our population and those who visit our continent. We would like to encourage schools, parents, conservationists, government, photographers, tourists and the general public to visit the exhibition to celebrate and to learn from the wealth of natural resources that grace our continent.

NMPi South Africa has worked with Iziko Museums of South Africa and Nature’s Best Photography Africa to conceptualise and implement an exciting augmented reality experience into this year’s exhibition. Visitors will be able to download an App that will enable them to use their cellular phones and tablets to open an augmented reality experience and to stand a chance to win one of the beautiful hardcover coffee table books that showcase this year’s winning images.

The publication is available in limited numbers and makes for a wonderful end of year corporate or personal gift with 100% of the revenue going back to supporting this valuable NGO.

No additional fees, other than the normal Museum entry, will be charged to visit this must-see exhibition. Nature’s Best Photography Africa is a South African non-profit entity that is associated to NBP Global, whose winner’s exhibition has been hosted by the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History for over 20 years.
