About using Media Club South Africa


Welcome to Media Club South Africa, brought to you by Brand South Africa.

The site is a free service for all media professionals – journalists, editors, writers, designers, picture editors and more – as well as for nonprofit organisations and private individuals. Its specific focus is on South Africa and Africa, offering the following content:

  • In-depth encyclopaedic background articles
  • Up-to-date news and feature articles
  • A comprehensive library of high-resolution images taken by award-winning professional South African photographers

All Media Club South Africa material may be republished, as is, free of charge, or be used as reference to generate new story ideas.

If stories are republished with little or no alteration, you are obliged to credit the author and Media Club South Africa, with a link to the site if published online.

You will have to register with the site to access the image library. The 2 500-plus photos in the collection cover everything from South Africa’s arts and culture to people, cities, tourism, infrastructure, business and industry.

To develop the library, top South African photographers such as Chris Kirchhoff, Graeme Williams, Jeffrey Barbee, Rodger Bosch and Hannelie Coetzee were specially commissioned to venture out across South Africa for a period of several months, photographing everything in their way.

The photographs are all available for download in high resolution, and may be republished at no cost – the only condition is that both the photographer and Media Club South Africa be credited, with a link to the site if published online.

Registration is quick, confidential and free, and gives you immediate access to the images.

You can also visit the Media Club South Africa page on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter.
