No! Wahala Magazine is one of Africa's first contemporary photography magazines championing authentic visual stories by African Creatives. The aim of this magazine is to showcase important visual stories told by African talents on and from the continent and get them seen by industry professionals. It is also a platform where Creatives can learn, be inspired, network, and better their visual storytelling skills whilst serving as a safe space where photographers can share their wins and the difficulties faced within the photography industry.
No! Wahala Magazine is much more than just a publication and online platform, it is also a resource that teaches creatives and industry professionals alike, about the importance of ethical storytelling and how this can be achieved through both learning and unlearning. A publication is printed and released once a year and stocked in creative spaces and educational institutions. Activities such as workshops, artist talks, and portfolio reviews also take place throughout the year.
We are a self-funded magazine and are continuously looking for sponsorships and partnership opportunities with organisations, educational institutions, and brands that share our goal. If you or your organisation are interested in partnering with us, feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.orgIf you would like to contribute to the next issue, please click on the donate button.
