Kampala Photo Week | Press Release

Under their #KoiKoiUg initiative, Kafunda Kreative has announced the inaugural Kampala Photo Week 2018

In this day an age, with increasing access to cameras, photography is a huge part of how we experience the world around us (Thank you Instagram). It is how we celebrate the things that are important to us. It is how we hold on to the moments we never want to forget. This June, Kafunda Kreative and KoiKoiUg invites you to experience, snap and share Kampala and Uganda with the world.

“ Kampala Photo Week is a chance for photographers young and old, pro or beginner to share their work and perspective with the world. So we are calling on everyone to share passion projects, abstract concepts or those pictures that just make them smile. However, to make it exciting, we have introduced activities and daily photo challenges to push our creativity a little.”

Joel Jjemba – Kafunda Kreative Community Manager

Kampala Photo Week will be a whole 7 days of activities, challenges and exciting giveaways to enable and encourage us to experience, document and share the beautiful city of Kampala and the country Uganda.
