We have steadily organised assignments all over the world, from South Africa to Syria, from Brazil to Honduras, and from Indonesia to India. In addition to photography, we are increasingly working on video shootings.
Our network of video journalists and photographers has increased and currently counts 85+ selected visual creators from 45+ countries in the Global South.
We have also been working on our processes and are about to start developing the first version of the new Fairpicture cloud platform, which will allow creators and clients to directly collaborate and communicate with each other.
On the organisational front, we had the privilege to welcome Lara Messmer to our team, who has been an invaluable support and inspiration from day one. We are also about to finalise the change of the legal entity and establish Fairpicture in Bern, the capital of Switzerland, to be closer to decision-makers in the international context.
In terms of funding, we are optimistic. Besides having a couple of investors and foundations on board, we are invited to several pitches in the next two months and have a crowd investing campaign planned in August. Some investment opportunities are still available, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you are interested in being our next investor!
With that, I want to close this article and say thanks to everyone who has supported us throughout the past year. Special thanks go to Essi Fischer, Urs Guggenbühl, and the company be-advanced for making us fit on the business dimension; to the team of the Social Impact Accelerator for their inputs on the impact dimension; and to the Leopold Bachmann Foundation for their financial support that allowed us to continue developing Fairpicture.
