We are compiling a database of professional African news photographers / photojournalists / documentary photographers working in any of the 55 internationally recognised countries on the continent.

We are interested in those photographers reporting on, or telling stories about, cultural, economic, environmental, political and social issues on the continent, sports and nature stories, as well as the ordinary or extraordinary in everyday life.

This is a joint project of the World Press Photo Foundation and Everyday Africa. This information will help the World Press Photo Foundation to engage photojournalists in Africa, and enable Everyday Africa to seek new contributors.

The information will eventually be made public so African news and documentary photographers can be better connected to the international media economy. Importantly, it will help international media better understand the issues and projects African visual journalists consider important and have covered.

If you would like to be included in the database, please submit your details below.
