The Greatest Maasai Mara Photographer of the Year

The Greatest Maasai Mara Photographer of the Year competition was launched by the Angama Foundation to reinforce the status of the Maasai Mara National Reserve as one of the best year-round wildlife destinations on the continent.

An Angama Foundation Initiative

Aimed at the community of Mara-based guides, Greater Mara employees, photographers and visitors, the competition showcases the incredible images from the Mara while raising funds for boots-on-the-ground conservation initiatives to ensure its sustainability for generations to come.

Each entry includes a donation to one of the competition’s conservation partners active in the Maasai Mara, with more than US$83,000 handed out by the Angama Foundation to the Anne K. Taylor Fund, the Maa Trust, the Mara Elephant Project, the Mara Conservancy and the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in 2019.

Running from January to October, each month a finalist is selected by a judging panel of acclaimed wildlife photographers, and stands a chance of winning the grand prize – a five-night safari for two at Angama Mara and US$10,000 in cash.
