About this opportunity

The 14th Bamako Encounters invites artists to explore new forms, experiment with dialogues in between word and image, and give visual existence to moments of speech, eloquence, anger, hope, recollection, silence, cacophony and noise.

The 14th Bamako Encounters – The African Biennal of Photography will be held from November 16, 2024 to January 15, 2025 in Bamako, Mali. This call is open to artists from the African world and its diaspora, photographers and videographers, amateurs or professionals, alone or in groups, with no limit of age or nationality.

The chosen thematic will focus on KUMA, the Speech, the Silence and the Noise. Photography has the power to make an image speak, to convey emotions, ideas and messages. A picture can tell a thousand stories. Transmit emotions, ideas and messages through the sheer force of the moment captured, by the framing, the light or the staging. Photographers have the power to make an image speak thanks to this genius. Photography speaks when bringing the past to life. For all eternity, it remains the memory of a moment, an era, a gesture, and the witness of a present that is conjugated with the future. Today, new voices are emerging from the Whole-World. Change of speech or change of climate. Nature urges us to make its voice heard. The 14th Bamako Encounters invites artists to explore new forms, experiment with dialogues in between word and image, and give visual existence to moments of speech, eloquence, anger, hope, recollection, silence, cacophony and noise
