Promoting photography as an art form

May 9, 2010

Murdoch University Photography Competition

This Thursday will witness the second annual Murdoch University Student Photography competition at the DIAC Student Hub Recreation Centre with entries from high school and university students.

The categories include: UAE high school students, UAE University Students and Murdoch University Media students enrolled in a photography unit, submitting photojournalistic photographs; in other words using Street Photography as a genre to depict the rich diverse cultures within the UAE.

The theme of the competition being Street Photography – A world in a city, the winning entries and selected photographs will be exhibited at this exhibition.

Whilst the photographs have been judged by professionals in the field, the three highest scoring entrants from each category win prizes exclusively sponsored by Nikon and Fujifilm in association with Grand Stores.

One of the outstanding features of this exhibition would be photographs taken by special needs individuals from UAE based organizations: Dubai Centre for Special Needs, Stepping Stones and the Dubai Autism Centre, with assistance of Murdoch University photography students.

These photographs are a result of a workshop organized by the university to introduce this art form to the community.
