Muscat: The Omani Photographic Society will open the international photography competition today.
The square contest is a unique Omani content and idea competition, sponsored by the International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP).
The idea of the contest for photographers is to challenge their creativity by providing the best of their artistic output in an integrated square shape.
The competition includes two axes: the axis of monochrome images and the axis of colour print images.
The number of entries in the monochrome images section was 73, given by 54 photographers. As for the coloured image section, 58 artistic pictures were accepted from 51 photographers from 11 different countries.
The Oman International Photography forum has been organised by the Omani Photographic Society and the cultural committee of the Muscat 2018 Festival. The launch ceremony of the competition was held at Beit Zubair Museum at 7pm and it will go on until February 13.
