Launched originally in 2009, iVisible is back and open for submissions. The platform finds its home on the Invisible Borders trans African photography website, where it exists to share stories of Africans, by Africans, on the continent and in the greater diaspora.
Seeking to strike a balance between Africa as it is perceived and Africa in reality, iVisible is calling for photo stories that truly reflect the experiences and nuances of Africans.
An excerpt from the website reads, “iVisible takes its life from the work of the organisation across Africa where we witness stories that can be told only by the witnesses. We understand that it is the person who directly experiences an event that is best suited for its narration. In this regard iVisible is news, reflection, and narrative.”
How it works:
Every month the top 3 submissions will be featured on the Invisible Borders website as part of the iVisible project. The project will aslo culminate as an annual photo book comprised of 36 photo stories. Two entries will be singled out for the iVisble Award and the iVisble Special Prize.
iVisible accepts submission of photographs which relay stories related to continental African and African diaspora realities. Submissions are limited to one photograph per entry with no more than 500 words. Submit your entry here.
