(CNN)To mark International Youth Day, CNN asked African photographers 35 and under to send us one picture that captured the issue they were most concerned about in their country.

We got submissions from countries across the continent, depicting issues such as youth unemployment, the gap between rich and poor, and the preservation of African cultures.
Scroll down the page to see why these young photographers chose these images to share with us, and where they were taken. Share your own images by tagging us @CNNAfrica.
