Don your most eye-catching African attire on 25 May, Africa Day, get a colleague to take a picture for a university-wide competition and you and your photographer could each be R1 000 richer.

The competition is part of UCT's Celebrating Africa programme of events, lectures, exhibitions and discussions that celebrate our African heritage, UCT's growing connections with other African universities, and the university's commitment to shaping the continent's future.

The best picture will be judged later by a panel. Alas, the R1 000 prize for best-dressed does not increase for group photos. There should also be evidence that the picture was taken on 25 May, between 08h30 and 21h00. Entries should be sent to Nan Warner at the International Academic Programmes Office.
