‘Capture the Spirit of Ramadan’ – International Photography Competition

Posted filed underIslam, Photography.

“Studio Basel for Creative Solutions is organizing and sponsoring one of a kind International Ramadan Photography Competition in an effort to share with the world the essence of the Holy month.

The 2011 International Professional Ramadan Photography Competition will showcase the skills and imagination of talented photographers around the world as they share their techniques and personal anecdotes about cultural and religious traditions during Ramadan.

Ramadan is not only considered to be the most spiritual month in the Islamic calendar but is also a time for families and friends to reunite in peace, prayer and piety. Fasting from sunrise to sunset as a form of spiritual cleansing, self-discipline and empathy for the less fortunate, Muslims during Ramadan practice tolerance, forgiveness and perform good deeds. It is in this spirit that photographers are invited to share their best photography in a unique and unprecedented 30-day visual celebration that will educate and enlighten thousands of viewers around the world.

The competition is open to talented photographers around the world over the age of 18. Cash prizes will be awarded and winners will have their photos published online and in print. Subject categories include: Spiritual, Social & Everything Else. Participants are encouraged to photograph people in prayer, holy places, mosques, iftar and suhoor foods, family gatherings, or even an inspiring shot of natural beauty and landscape taken during the month of Ramadan.
