If there’s one way to reignite your passion for Africa, just host a photographic competition celebrating the wonders of the continent. Over the past 6 months we’ve asked Africa Geographic’s readers to send us their best images, and we’ve been inundated with entries – 9,736 to be exact, that’s 52 photos a day on average, and we’ve enjoyed looking at every one of them. It reminds us just how diverse this enormous continent is and how much there is to celebrate.
These are not the finalists (you’ll find the 15 finalists here), but read further to find out what type of photos our readers love taking, and as a treat we have included a selection of entries that are bound to make you smile. Read more.
