AFRICA–CHINA PHOTO EXHIBITION 2018

Description

The Africa-China Reporting Project (ACRP) at Wits Journalism is inviting all journalists, media practitioners and photographers to submit images for an Africa-China Photo Exhibition that will collect images from across Africa that best encapsulate applicants’ interpretation of “Africa–China”.

The Project will include selected images in an Africa-China Photo Exhibition and make them publicly available under a Creative Commons license, giving full credit to the image owners at all times.

Commonly the images accompanying Africa-China news tend to display meetings between high-ranking officials and occasionally the juxtaposition of maps and flags of the African continent and China.

The Africa-China Reporting Project supports journalists to investigate complex Africa-China dynamics and uncover untold stories, emphasizing on-the-ground African impact and perspectives to illustrate how the lives of the people of Africa are changing amid the comprehensive phenomenon of Africa-China interactions. The Project is calling for submissions that best encapsulate this vision of Africa-China.

Eligibility

  • Submissions are open to all journalists, media practitioners, and photographers;
  • Applicants must have taken the images themselves;
  • Images must be taken in Africa;
  • Each applicant can submit a maximum of three images, including the preferred name to be attributed;
  • Images must be submitted in high-res quality in freely accessible formats, preferably JPEG or PNG.

Award

The Project will also select the best two images in the exhibition and give the following awards:

  • First place: USD 1,000 grant to write an accompanying story of the image as well as a fully paid trip to the Project’s Africa-China Journalists Forum in Johannesburg on 1 November 2018, along with the option to do one of the opening speaking slots;
  • Second place: USD 1,000 grant to write the accompanying story of the image.

How to apply?
