Entries are invited for the International Photography Contest 2019 in Doha, Qatar. In celebration of Doha as the OIC Youth Capital 2019, the Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum (ICYF), in partnership with the Ministry of Culture and Sports of the State of Qatar, Youth Hobbies Center and Qatar Cultural and Heritage Events Center, announces the “Photography Contest“ in framework of Doha OIC Youth Capital Innovation Awards.
Young people acquire wide creative energy that has been manifested in their artistic, literary, intellectual and cultural production in general. This has made a distinctive impact on the cultural activity in the Islamic societies and led to the promotion of cultural diversity, intellectual and artistic openness, creative interaction among artists and the dissemination of identity elements in their creations so that communities preserve their identity since the Nation’s Strength Lies in its Youth.
Therefore, the Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum, an international organization affiliated to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, invites the youth of Islamic countries to participate in the Doha Youth Innovation Award, which will be distributed during the conclusion of Doha Capital of Islamic Youth, January 17, 2020. The Award aims at valuing the skills and creations in various artistic and creative fields for youth delegates, thus contributing in the formation of youth experiences that would be able to engage in community development and to work to develop these experiences.
