Siraj Muyingo has been declared the winner of this year’s Uganda Press Photo Awards (UPPA).
Held on November 10, the ceremony was preceded by a photo exhibition at the Uganda Museum in Kampala, and various photography categories were recognised for their contribution to journalism in particular, and story-telling in general.
Joshua Abaho and Elizabeth Kaniwabo, year- two mass communication students in UCU, also took part in this competition.
“The initial aim of the awards was to raise the bar for professional photojournalism in Uganda, but over the years it has widened its scope to promoting photography and visual literacy in general,” said Mareike Le Pelley, resident director of UPPA Uganda.
