BLACK PRIDE PHOTO CONTEST (BPPC) started in 2018 as one of the plans of BLACK PRIDE Magazine to give back to the society.
It is organised with the intention of celebrating beauties in Nigeria and Africa as a whole in its purest form. It is also an avenue to showcase what we have in Nigeria – beauty and promoting such beauty for a year in the brand’s little way.
After sleepless nights, drafting, planning, seemingly unending brainstorm sessions and counting of votes, the unveiling of the winner of #BPPC2.0 and new brand ambassador of BLACK PRIDE Magazine has come.
