A few days ago, I received an e-mail from one of the members of the Creative Team of Al Ain Photographia Award, launched by Al Ain Municipality under the patronage of Sheikha Dr. Shamma bint Mohammad bin Khaled Al Nahyan, informing me about the said photo competition. They stumbled upon my blog while they were looking for Al Ain/UAE-based photographers/photobloggers with an interesting portfolio of work. Thanks for the heads up, Chipo.
The Al Ain Photographia Award is set to challenge photographers-professional and amateur, photo hobbyists and enthusiasts to explore and capture the beauty and spirit of the Garden City of the United Arab Emirates. The competition is open for locals and non-locals, and to the residents and non-residents of UAE. You can submit up to 5 images until 23rd of October 2011. Prizes will be awarded on 11 November 2011 in a ceremony to be held here in Al Ain. A total prize money of AED 190,000 is set to be given for the 10 winners with a jaw-dropping AED 50,000 for the first prize! What are you waiting for, press the shutter and join the contest!!
