Photographs published in National Geographic are taken by a young amateur photographer in Côte d'Ivoire, Marc Olivier N'GUESSAN. Because he loves photography, his friend shared him a link to the TECNO Global Photography Competition, from where started his magical journey. This photography competition initiated by TECNO aims to find potential photography talents, to experience the beauty of mobile photography together, as well as to explore the limits of mobile photography. This event attracted the active participation of more than 4.77 million photography enthusiasts from 15 countries and regions, including some well-known independent photographers, which is a great success. Photographer Michael Christopher Brown, who is known for recording the Libyan war with his mobile phone, visited an offline photography training camp in Nigeria to share skills and fun of mobile photography.
