Each photo submission must be accompanied by a brief description, including the place and country where it was taken and how it tells the story of microfinance and advances in access to finance.

Prizes include a grand prize, second prize and third prize as well as winners from each region. For the first time this year, CGAP has added a “people’s choice” category where others can vote for their favorite photos online.

This year’s grand prize is a $2,000 gift certificate for photography equipment and accessories. CGAP made this announcement today, June 8.
