The No! Wahala Magazine Open Call for African Photographers

This is an opportunity for African Photographers to have their work featured in a photography magazine. The theme of this open call is called 'Aftermath'. Aftermath is defined as ‘the consequences or after-effects of a significant unpleasant event’. We are in a period of Aftermath. The Aftermath of a global pandemic such as COVID-19 which constituted a worldwide lockdown. The Aftermath of climate change and the possibility of humanity becoming extinct if we don't act now. The Aftermath of civil unrest in various parts of the world, and the list goes on.

For issue 2, we invite African Photographers to explore the theme ‘Aftermath’ by submitting a body of work which represents the after-effects of a significant event. This does not have to be something literal such as COVID, it can be something personal that has happened to you or someone you love, it can be a health condition, a loss, a gain- It does not necessarily have to be the Aftermath of something negative. Think outside of the box and allow your creativity to lead on your visual storytelling journey.

Deadline: February 28, 2022


The selected Photographers will receive an invitation to have their work featured in the magazines next issue.
- 5 Photographers will have their projects featured in the publication
- 5 Photographers will have their 'Civil Unrest' images included in the publication
