Two Lebanese and Omani women win National Geographic Competition


The Lebanese and Omani photographers, Zeinab Khalifeh and Wafaa Abdel Majid won the 9th edition of the ‘Moments’ photography competition organized by National Geographic respectively for the adults and children categories. The National Geographic Abu Dhabi (NGAD), affiliated with Abu Dhabi Information, in collaboration with Almarai, announced the winning photos in the contest aimed to promote the talents of aspiring regional photographers and provide support for photography amateurs. The event, to recall, was held last week at the Youth Hub at the Emirates Towers in Dubai. The photo captured by Khalifeh zoomed in on an old tailor in Saida Old Souks, South Lebanon, stitching his 40-years of life in the trade with all its sorrows and delights, while Abdel Majid displayed in her image the Mutrah Souk in the Omani capital, Muscat. The Adult category winner earned an expedition trip worth of USD 10,000 and the winner for the Children’s category will receive USD 5000 in photography equipment. Both winners will have their photographs printed in the National Geographic magazine Arabic edition. (An Nahar, November 27, 2019)
