    South Africans have found a good way to play their part on Mandela day. Photos for Mandela Day SA has started a photo contest to hunt for the perfect picture to depict  Nelson Mandela’s great legacy.

    Hundreds of South Africans were asked to send in positive and inspiring pictures to an online photography competition.

    “What began as a crazy idea at 3am on morning in April, 2016, astonishingly became on the most publicised and talked about campaigns of the year. It can only be testimony to the great energy of Mr. Nelson Mandela guiding the initiative every step of the way. I am blessed to have had the best team of professionals to help make this campaign so successful.” Chris Page, founder of One Day in Time and 67 Photos for Mandela Day.
