Art Jameel Photography Award: Visual Storytelling Workshop

In collaboration with the Art Jameel Photography Award, Maraya Art Centre is hosting a photography workshop with Mobipix, UAE’s first Mobile Photography Community, founder Reem Saeed, who will host a photo walk in Al Qasba exploring the natural environment to create photo stories with the ‘Transitions’ theme.

The Visual Storytelling is a workshop that will teach students how to tell their stories in an instant manner with impact and emotion. Using the right set of images is essential to create that desired impact. Therefore defining the right image relies on its power.

Composition, lighting and style are all factors that can to that power. Story telling should be authentic, relevant and reflects to human experience to touch audiences.

The award seeks to discover talented photographers and help them develop their skills and exhibit exceptional photography. For the first time, this year’s competition is open to nationals and residents across the GCC, having previously been open only to residents in Saudi Arabia.
