To coincide with the Commonwealth People’s Forum in Rwanda and the run-up to COP27 in Egypt, the Commonwealth Foundation is bringing together photographs from the African Commonwealth countries to show the direct effects of climate change on their communities.

We are looking for original photographs that depict the impact of climate change on your communities. We are especially seeking personal perspectives that illustrate how daily life is affected by climate change.

The call is open to all, amateur and professional, African photographers who live and work in one of the Commonwealth countries in Africa. We are thankful to all who have submitted photography so far. We are particularly interested to receive submissions from the following countries:

  • Botswana
  • Cameroon
  • e-Swatini
  • Lesotho
  • Mauritius
  • Namibia
  • Rwanda
  • Seychelles
  • The Gambia
  • Zambia

One photographer from each of the African Commonwealth countries will be selected to have their work displayed at the People’s Forum and on our social media platforms. Each selected photographer will receive a £50 fee for featuring their work.

Complete this form to submit your photos to the call. The deadline for submissions is midnight (BST, London) on Monday 16 May.
