Over the years, many moments have shaped the face of Rugby on the African continent, and the Media & Photography Awards will be held in recognition of the women and men who have been there to capture them. These are the unsung heroes and heroines of African Rugby, working tirelessly to promote the sport in every corner of the continent, widening its impact as it continues to change and bridge lives.
We know great content can come from anywhere, so even you can submit your “drop-kick at posts” in this exciting new competition. Fans and players together are the pulse of every game, both young and old, therefore the competition is open for all to participate in and to take part in the action – we would be honoured to consider your submission. If your friends and family like it, there is a great chance that our judges will like it too.
Rugby continues to make its mark by elevating the promise of brand Africa through the exploits of countries such as South Africa, Kenya, Namibia, and many others. As the bastillion of Rugby on the African continent, Rugby Africa is impressed by the far-reaching achievements of all the stakeholders in the game, which has ensured broad-based recognition of the sport, as it should be.
The work of the talented men and women who chronicle the sport deserves recognition, and we are delighted that we are able to share and celebrate the best of African journalism and photography on this grand scale.
