“Hey (insert name)
I have updated my profile on the PICHA website and would like to ask for your support, by following me you will help me increase the chances of having my images seen.
I am not sure if you know this but PICHA is a platform where photographers can sell their images. I do share their mission of promoting African talents by telling positive stories of Africa to the world. The platform is followed by creatives and by people who just love great photos.
And as a show of gratitude, there is a free #MelaninModern collection that you can use to create a richer visual stories, PowerPoint presentations, brochures or social media posts. LINK HERE.
I am counting on you as they are also having a challenge until 16/02/2020 that I am planning on winning with your help and others to whom you can forward this.
Many thanks, (insert your name)”
Best of luck to you!
