Our Mission

To promote and encourage African Australian stories and Creatives and become a hub for African creatives and stories.

Sona Images is an Australian production house that focuses on promoting African Australian creatives and telling stories through the camera lens.

Sona Images was founded in 2020 by two African Australians, Jessica Bailey and Abdulrahim Elmi. Jessica, through her journey witnessed the lack of representation of African Australians in the Australian creative space and saw the need to create a platform where African Australian creatives and African stories can be made visible.

In this spirit, with the support of her business partner, Sona Images was founded.
