Call for Artwork: Africa Today cover art


Africa Today seeks artwork, in any medium, for use on the covers of upcoming journal issues. We publish four issues per year.


The art must be related to Africa. That is, it should be representative of (or intervene in) African arts, culture, society, geography, music, history, etc.

Artwork can be photographed and reproduced for publication in print and digital formats.

Artwork is by African artists, especially those based on the African continent, but we will also consider work by artists located outside of Africa and by non-African artists.


Artwork should be original and unpublished.

Artist retains copyright.

If selected for publication, artwork will be accompanied by a brief explanation written by the artist and may include the artist’s contact information.

As a non-profit academic journal, we cannot offer monetary remuneration, but we can offer you visibility and recognition in the journal.


If interested, please contact Africa Today’s managing editor at with the subject line “Artwork for the Cover of Africa Today.” Please describe the type of art you create, your typical subject matter, a brief biography, and send low-res samples or provide a link to an online portfolio.
