CAP Photography Prize 2019
- The CAP Prize, the International Prize for Contemporary African Photography is awarded annually to five outstanding photographers.
- the prize consists of global exposure at major international photography exhibitions such as at the IAF Basel – Festival for Contemporary Art in Basel, Switzerland. In previous years the CAP Prize winners exhibition was on show at LagosPhoto Festival in Nigeria, at FIFCV Festival Internacional de Fotografia de Cabo Verde, Eyes On – European Month of Photography in Vienna, Austria or at the Bamako Encounters in Bamako, Mali, just to name a few. The five CAP Prize winners are annually invited to the main exhibition at the IAF Basel – Festival for Contemporary Art and spend one week in Basel.

A catalog documenting the five winners works is published in time for the award ceremony.
