Photographer of the year competition by My Gambia

Everybody enjoys a good picture. For us, photos are the window to the world. Many people haven’t been to the Gambia yet, many are hoping to come back soon, and pictures are the one thing that can make you feel closer to our beloved country.
We have encountered many talents on our way. And we were always happy to share their skills with you. This is why we want to encourage more people to share their passion for photography and show the world the beauty of photography together with the beauty of the Gambia
