Call for submissions is now opened for PICHA’s annual photographic exhibition for 2019.
Each year, PICHA runs a campaign focused on a particular theme to get the community of photographers all around the continent inspired and involved. This year, photographers are invited to submit their images and interpretation of “SKIN” – what it means to be an African today.
A Visual Exploration of the African Identity “Apart from the roles we play in our communities and the traditions we’ve inherited from the past, what does it mean to be African today? Who are we once we are stripped of the expectations, the prejudices and the assumptions? These are some of the themes photographers can explore when developing their concept for submissions,” Marketing Director for PICHA, Lana Wessels, said.
Entry is open to all photographers in Africa and the diaspora, amateur to professional. The top 20 images submitted will be chosen by our panel of judges to be featured in exhibitions across Africa this December! Featured artists benefit from an international platform as well as commissions from every sale made of their work at the exhibitions.
Photographers interested in submitting their images are encouraged to get in touch with PICHA’s Contributor Relations Manager, Guya via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Closing date for submissions is 30 September 2019.
PICHA is a visual content provider founded on the realization that the perceptions of Africans in the world are not always the reality of Africans or black communities in the world. PICHA brings you curated, African visuals that enable brands and businesses to tell richer stories that include modern Africans so they can connect with their audiences more effectively.
“PICHA has been built on the belief that original stories can change perceptions. That is why we strive to bring the voices, faces and stories of modern Africa to the world and the brands we serve,” Lana added.
