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:
Why do girls feel empowered to engage in sexual activity but not to enjoy it? For three years, author Peggy Orenstein interviewed girls ages 15 to 20 about their attitudes toward and experiences of sex. She discusses the pleasure that’s largely missing from their sexual encounters and calls on us to close the “orgasm gap” by talking candidly with our girls from an early age about sex, bodies, pleasure and intimacy.
I love the creative arts, especially performance theatre. I came across this amazing short film about a young girl who’s searching for healing in the wake of her grandmother’s passing. After her mother throws away show tickets, she decides to attend a Dance Theatre of Harlem performance. The young girl watches in awe as the Black ballerinas whirl with grace, later finding herself beaming with inspiration as a result.
Written by Charlie Sohne and directed by Daniel Schloss, it truly is beautiful piece of work
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.
