Benjamin Mkapa African Wildlife Photography Awards Exhibition

Please join HPAC and the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) for an informative and engaging evening highlighting AWF’s unique approach to achieving successful conservation results in Africa.

For more than 60 years, AWF has used the principles of Leading for Wildlife, Living with Wildlife and Caring for Wildlife to ensure the future of Africa’s iconic species and improve the livelihoods of the continent’s people.

The evening’s program will include the airing of several African Conservation Voices short films crafted by African filmmakers that tell authentic conservation stories from an African perspective. This will be followed by a moderated panel discussion of AWF experts from Kenya and Zimbabwe who will delve into the films’ stories and the importance of African-led solutions to wildlife conservation and biodiversity.

In the HPAC lobbies, images from the internationally recognized Mkapa African Wildlife Photography Exhibition will be on view – highlighting exquisite prints from the near 10,000 submissions on which the award winners were judged. The Mkapa exhibition is based on a partnership with AWF and Nature’s Best Photography, and HPAC will be the final stop on a 2-year-long international road show.

“To be sustainable, conservation must be led by Africans because we are the stewards of these resources,” says Kaddu Sebunya, AWF’s CEO. “These images and short films help start the conversation. They help define and refine Africa’s agenda for conservation and development.”HPAC is the first arts center to display these works, which have previously been shown only in renowned museums.
