The Selous Award

In collaboration with Safari Club International, the A.P.H.A. is thrilled to announce The African Professional Hunter's Association Selous Award.

The award is to be given annually to the individual full member of the A.P.H.A. or, under exceptional circumstances and for extraordinary work, the A.P.H.A. honorary member, who has CONTRIBUTED AND ACHIEVED THE MOST FOR BIG GAME CONSERVATION AND ITS HABITAT. Its wider significance is to demonstrate that the leading Professional Hunters in Africa contribute immensely to the conservation of game and habitat. 

The A.P.H.A. annual Selous Award will recognize a hunter who has a deep-rooted passion for African Hunting. This award will have nothing to do with trophy sizes or numbers. Instead it will be based solely on a hunter's inherent desire to ethically hunt African game and his/her abiding love for African wildlife. 

No one can recognize the true intentions of why a hunter is hunting our beloved continent better than the African PH's themselves. That is why the winner of the APHA Selous Award will be decided by Africa's top PH/s, the members of the A.P.H.A.

The award itself is an exceptionally stunning piece of art created by world-renowned artist, A.P.H.A. honorary member, and passionate African hunter – TD Kelsey.

The next awarding of the A.P.H.A. Selous Award will take place at the 2020 Safari Club International convention.
