Lucky local photographers and videographers are set to get international exposure if their applications to participate in the biannual Pan-African exhibition, are accepted.
Bamako Encounters, an international platform dedicated to promote African videography and photography is the brain behind the exhibition. The 10th edition is organised by the Ministry of Culture of Mali and it is scheduled to take place at the National Museum of Mali from October 31 to December 31 2015.
Submissions in Rwanda can be delivered at The Office, Kiyovu. Last week a workshop was organised by The Fulbright programme, a flagship international educational exchange programme sponsored by the U.S, in partnership with the French Institute of Rwanda in line with the exhibition.
The workshop was a follow up on a visit by Silva Bisi, the artistic director of Bamako Encounters, who visited Rwanda last December to encourage Rwandan artists to take part in the exhibition.
