DOHA: Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF) has announced launching a photography competition that will see amateur and professional photographers in Qatar compete for their chance to win valuable prizes and the honour of being crowned 2018 Aspire International Kite Festival Photography Competition winner.
The competition will be held for the first time on the sidelines of the renowned Aspire International Kite Festival, a three-day spectacle that is taking place at Aspire Park for the second year running from March 6 to 9.
This year’s Aspire International Kite Festival promises to be one of the largest kite festivals in the world. The competition has been organised in collaboration with Qatar Photographic Society, opening the door to their membership of more than 1,000 professionals. It is also expected to attract hundreds of amateur photography enthusiasts across Qatar, with AZF allowing them to get closer to the festival action and capture it in all its glory through the artistic medium of photography.
Ahmed Al Khulaifi, the Chairman of Qatar Photographic Society, said: “We would like to extend the invitation to all professional and amateur photographers in Qatar and ask them to come and demonstrate their talents and capture this beautiful sport that connects Qatar’s diverse local communities.”
“Aspire Park is also the perfect venue for photographers, with its vast open spaces and diverse landscape providing an ideal opportunity for photographers to use different lenses, angles and lighting throughout the day. We wish all of the entrants the best of luck and hope they enjoy capturing this amazing spectacle though the lenses of their cameras.”
The competition will be open to all who are 10-years-old and above. The competition will accept three to five high-quality photos without any watermarks or personal information on a CD in JPEG or TIFF 300 DPI format for each individual submission. The use of photo editing programs i.e., Photoshop shall be limited to minor colour touches. Conditions will be announced on Aspire Zone’s ‘Life in Aspire’ website www.lifeinaspire.qa and AZF social media websites.
A business class plane ticket to a destination of their choice will be awarded for the first place winner of 2018 Aspire International Kite Festival Photography Competition. Second place winner will receive two economy class plane tickets, whilst third and fourth place winners will each receive a professional camera.
