36 photographers have been nominated as finalists for the 2018 Kenya Photography Awards.
They were nominated under 6 different categories: News, Daily Life, Sports, Nature, Creative and Portraiture.
The 36 were nominated following a rigorous judging process by top judges in the photography industry.
During this year’s edition, judges did not shortlist anyone in the humanitarian/documentary category as no entry passed the litmus test, they say to warrant short listing.
The following are nominees in the six different categories:
Enos Teche Okusi
Peter Ndung’u Kamau
Abdiwahid Abdikadir Abdiwahid
David Kariuki Njogu
Neha Manoj Shah
Ali Tanvir Mohsin

Patrick Mwaura K.
Curtis Obimbo A.
Elie Shikuku O.
Organized by PAWA 254, the Kenya Photography Awards seek to not only reward excellence in the discipline but also promote and improve photography standards in the country.
Winners will be announced at an awards gala night on July 8th 2018 at the Kenya Cultural Centre
