In order to bring attention to the important work of Uganda’s photojournalists, the Foreign Correspondents of Uganda and the Freidrich Ebert Stiftung created the photo awards — with its five presiding judges — to honor the works of the nation’s top photojournalists.

The top winner receives a Nikon DS300s camera, while other winners receive an assortment of other prizes.
