ALT Advisory Call For Photojournalists and Illustrators

ALT Advisory is calling for three young African artists and/or photojournalists to create digital artwork, photography, and other visual media centered on themes linked to information rights, such as data protection, online freedom of expression, digital privacy, and internet access.

This is part of a new ALT Advisory Special Project to create open-source visual media about information rights that promote these rights, inspire optimism and/or activity, and contribute to information rights representations that encourage diversity and inclusivity.
Selected images will be licensed to ALT Advisory and made available to third parties under a Creative Commons license.


  • Illustrators and/or photojournalists will be commissioned at a fixed rate of USD500 per commission.
  • Illustrators will receive a brief, and develop an initial concept before being commissioned to produce the final artworks.
  • The artwork should be provided in a variety of formats, suitable to being used in large (A2) posters, stickers, postcards and web images.
  • Photojournalists will receive an editorial brief to produce street/documentary photography relevant to the theme of information rights, in an urban or rural area in Africa.
  • Photographers will be expected to adhere to ethical guidelines in the South African Press Code of Ethics, and/or an equivalent press code in the country where they are based.
  • The images should be provided in a format that is suitable for editorial and journalistic purposes.


  • Candidates of all abilities, ages, gender identities and expressions, national origins, races and ethnicities, religious beliefs, and sexual orientations are welcome to apply.
