The Now Collectives is Africa’s largest photography conference where Photographers connect, share, learn, and most importantly, network with other colleagues in the industry. Our focus is to create an atmosphere where photographers discuss pivotal issues paramount to the total well being of the African photography industry.

TNC 2019 is slated to take place on the 20th, 21st & 22nd of May, 2019 in the city of Lagos, Nigeria. It will include a photo exhibition of TNC & Canon Mentorship program, presentations from a highly reputable guest list, workshops and of course, a great closing party.

Here are our Goals at The Now Collective

1. To Build a strong Community hinged on collaboration

There’s no limit to what we can achieve if we give room for rewarding collaborations, this is what we stand for, believe and practice at TNC. Both established and budding photographers deserve equal opportunity to network and embrace possible collaborations.

2. We Invest in Knowledge acquisition

Our speakers are selected from a vast pool of internationally acclaimed photographers from around the world. Veterans in their own right, these individuals are carefully selected to give participants career-shaping experience.

TNC is a long-term project. If you will like to support the conference by sponsoring, speaking or giving back  at #TNC19 kindly send us an email to

3. We Learn and take fun seriously
At TNC, Fun is one of our important cultures, it is why we always plan to include it in the conference. Every year, we always ensure an Epic after party where speakers and participants can network, dance and have fun.
