Photographer Eric Miller created this image purely for fun approximately 15 years ago. He never intended for it to be made available for sale or editorial or commercial usage. Every year he is asked if he would post it to social media, which he does. Apparently, people like seeing it pop up every year. And, seemingly more people simply like stealing it. It is amazing to see how far and wide it has been used. However, this image can be licensed legally through africa.pictures

In 2024 african.pictures will be announcing new ways we will be helping people to legally license such material. At Africa Media Online we have always been passionate about ensuring revenue comes back to Africa’s storytellers so they can keep telling Africa’s story. We do this through training, digitisation, digital archiving, our picture library and in other innovative ways that we hope to announce in the New Year. So keep tuned!
As you dream big dreams for 2024 let’s plan a time to discuss how we can help you get your archive off the shelf and out to your audience. Let’s work together to ensure that all content is preserved, distributed and licensed in the most effective and efficient way possible.
A restful Christmas and a New Year full of wonderful possibilities and realised dreams to you and your family.
We will be closed from 22 December 2023 to 8 January 2024
