Abdul Salam competition (now closed)

Snapshots of our sporting history

This challenge promoted the art of sports photography, with a focus on sports culture and heritage in Qatar. Residents, both amateur and professional, were encouraged to use imagery to explore old stadiums and stars, as well as more modern subjects.

Shortlisted photos were put on display at the Gate Mall. Pictures invited the public to reflect on the medium and on sport in general, which is rapidly gathering new followers in the region.

The winner received a professional Canon camera, allowing them to expand their creativity and progress as a photographer. Read more about the competition here.
