Call for Illustrators

Call for Illustrators / Appel à illustrateurs / Chamada para Ilustradores

Following the success of Hopes and Dreams That Sound Like Yours (2021), Taboom Media and GALA Queer Archive are working to produce a second anthology of Stories of Queer Activism in Africa. We are looking to commission illustrators from across Africa to visually interpret and illustrate each story.


How to apply: Fill in the following Google Form, upload/link a portfolio of your recent illustrative work, and tell us why you would like to be a part of this project.


Each illustration commissioned will be remunerated with USD150 (processed at the interbank exchange rate for the illustrator's local currency, as stated on Google/XE/Oanda at the moment payment is processed. Taboom Media will cover all initiating fees, ensuring the amount displayed on Google/XE/Oanda should reach recipient's account).


Illustrators from across the African continent are encouraged to apply.


Applications close 11 March.


Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. If you have not been contacted by Taboom/GALA in two weeks of the application closing date, please consider your application to be unsuccessful.


If you have any further questions or are having trouble with the google form, please email
