African Artist’s Foundation is pleased to announce an open call for submissions to 2014’s The Maker: New Contemporaries in Design and Photography. Entries should explore the following areas of design: furniture, product, fashion, graphic, and architecture; as well as photographs that push the boundaries of contemporary African photography.

The Maker: New Contemporaries, is a platform for budding artists to present their portfolios via projections to a wide audience of galleries, curators, collectors, patrons, art critics, academics and the press. Each selected artist will be a recent graduate (up to 5 years) or final year student of Art, Design, Architecture, or any related or relevant course of study. Participants will have a maximum of 10 minutes to present their portfolios via projections.

Following last year’s successful number of entries and portfolio presentations, we are placing an emphasis on this year’s call on the sub-genres of design: furniture, product, graphic, fashion and architecture; as well as seeking photographers that expand the notions and practices of contemporary photography being produced in Africa today.

Applicants without an academic background who show strong conceptual depth will also be considered. There will be 7 participants per session.

How to Apply

Send an email with your name, date of birth, course of study/discipline, school/school attended/year of graduation, 5 digital images of recent works and a short synopsis of your practice to: themaker@africanartists.org

Submission deadline: April 30, 2014
