I just came across an exciting opportunity for photographers based across Africa. Agility are hosting a continent wide photo competition and are specifically searching for images that highlight “today’s vibrant, modern African reality”. Winners can win up to $4,000.00 in three categories: industry, technology and cities.
For more details about how to enter this competition and what exactly the judges are looking for, click here.
Last year’s winners in each category are below:
South African fashion kitwear brand, MAXHOSE BY LADUMA, was established in 2010 and I’ve been following them for a while. The aesthetics and beautiful quality of their collections often make me wish I had use for warm clothes in Ghana.
Love, love, LOVE this brand.
I find beauty everywhere, but its on Instagram that I find the beauty as seen by others – and I love experiencing the lives of others by what they visually put on their Instagram feeds.
One of my favourite pages is @BeBeautifulla. Check out a few of my favourite posts and follow if you enjoy :-)
I moved to East Legon at the beginning of the year and, as I’ve settled into the area, I’m discovering how quaint and quintessentially middle class the area is. The number of affordable eateries, coffeeshops and boutiques are too many to count. One such shop I discovered, thanks to the amazing Instagram, is Odara.
If you love delicate, yet bold, jewellery, then look no further. Located at the A&C Mall, I was surprised to realised that these beautiful pieces are super affordable as well… some pieces as affordable as GHS 25.00.
Take a look at my favourite pieces from their instagram page:
The work of Ivorian digital artist and storyteller, Paul Sika, is as thought provoking as it is captivating. I especially love the extreme visual quality of his images, which, for me, entices me to engage with every single detail of each image.
There is serious beauty in the rawness of his work. The more I look at it, the more I love it.
