Fashola Photographic Foundation


The Fashola Photographic Foundation annual contest, in its 3rd year, is a platform for participants to gain recognition in the region for their artistic and technical achievements. The theme for this year is “The Order side of Chaos” and it is open to all aspiring cinematographers in the African region. Does chaos bring orderliness in the end? It is open to interpretation.


Chaos and order is the big subject of the universe – the creation of order out of chaos and the eventual return to randomness.
