Corona_Call_v02

Open Call

Enter your work now until 8 August 2020

This open call provides a platform for photographers from Africa and Europe to respond to the global Covid-19 crisis.

The worldwide spread of Covid-19 can be seen as a consequence of the approximately 500-year history of globalisation, which began not least with the circumnavigation of the African continent by European seafarers. Against this backdrop, we focus our attention on the two continents and invite photographers from Africa and Europe to submit their works on the effects of the Corona pandemic.

We welcome images that explore how Covid-19 has influenced and changed our lives, whether in relation to your personal experience or with an investigative topic. There are no thematic, stylistic or technical restrictions. The only condition is to deal with the current corona crisis.

Corona Call is a project by Sana Sanaa – Intercultural Dialogues on Art, in cooperation with European Photography, Oath Magazine, CAP Prize for Contemporary African Photography, Kigali Center for Photography, The Nlele Institute and Artificial Image.

Sana Sanaa’s goal is to generate an open dialogue about art via exchanges from one part of the world to another. Our intention with this photography open call is to continue this dialogue by hosting twin events; like exhibitions of the results in both Africa and Europe. The resulting shows will be a physical manifestation of our continued efforts at Sana Sanaa to connect both continents through art.
