With fantastic prizes and an esteemed panel of judges, The Greatest Maasai Mara Photographer of the Year competition raises funds for important boots-on-the-ground conservation initiatives while promoting the Mara as a year-round, world-class wildlife destination. The best entries each month are showcased on social media helping to promote the Maasai Mara as well as the incredible photographers who have captured it — both amateurs and professionals alike. In addition, the fantastic guides of the Mara are celebrated for their ability to make these incredible moments possible, with the winning photographer's guide receiving their own prize of a trip outside of Kenya.
The competition runs from 1 January until 31 October each year, with the judging panel selecting five finalists each month. The overall winner is chosen from the pool of 50 finalists and announced at the end of the year.
