Applications are open for the Casa Ãfrica Photography Contest 2022. The contest will reward the photographs that best publicise the positive aspects of the African continent in the field of digital transformation in Africa, this yearâ€™s theme.
The world is immersed in an accelerating process of digital transformation. The development of the Internet and, especially, of mobile phones, is opening new ways to promote and strengthen the development of the African continent.

The aim of this edition is therefore to certify through images how this digital transformation is taking place on the African continent.
