The nature and wildlife in Qatar is one of the most overlooked qualities of the tiny Arabian peninsula and the Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME) wants to raise awareness regarding this lesser-known issue via a nature and wildlife photography competition with the theme "Our Environment, Our Legacy" where joiners have the chance to win as much as 11,000 Qatari Riyals plus special prizes!
The State of Qatar is rich with countless forms of on-land and marine wildlife despite its mostly desert-filled terrains. Part of MME's goal in making the photography contest happen, besides the one mentioned above, is to spread the word about the significance of preserving our environment—hence its tagline.
Running at the moment till the 4th of April, an entrant's ethnicity doesn't matter in order to be eligible to join as long as he or she shoots content out of the capital where most of the beaches, rock formations, abandoned villages, and exotic animals can be seen.
There are 2 categories (photo and video) and the panel of judges will choose 40 winners all in all (20 in each of the 2 categories) with the top photographer and videographer set to bring home a whopping 11,000 QR (more than 3,000 USD).
Moreover, 10 winners will get 1,000 QR each as special prizes.
Entries shall be sent along with the participant’s details via the MME website.
Hurry! They're accepting entries until April 4, 2019 ONLY!
