At the core of our mission is a deep commitment to excellence in visual journalism and documentary. We aim to give local photographers a platform and deliver high-quality visual stories.  We seek to empower, educate, connect, and support through collaborations with media organisations, NGOs, and other agencies.  Find out how we can work together or use the form below. 

Photographers & Storytellers
We are no one without our storytellers We work with local professional documentary photographers or videographers from the regions of Latin America and Africa. 
The storytellers ought to:

  • Be from Latin America or Africa and ought to have already an established voice and body of work.
  • Have proven experience in delivering high-quality pieces.
  • Have substantial knowledge of the subject or region they will be covering.
  • Work on personal stories but with a clear journalistic background. 
  • Face difficulties editing, communicating or marketing their work to a global audience.

Stories can be told through video or stills and do not have to be sent in as a last edit. We are happy to work with storytellers under the guidance of editors. Guidance will also be given on areas such as captioning, submitting stories for grants and making finals edits for different platforms: social media, print, online, and exhibitions.
