Qatar Museums laydown sporting challenge for Year of Culture

Win free air tickets in cricket photography contest

Is your eye for a memorable snap good enough to bowl people over? Well, now you can enter a cricket photography competition and prove it.

Plus, the best pictures will win three economy class tickets to India, one for each of competition’s top three winners.

After Qatar Museums’ (QM) recent unveiling of its partner country India for the 2019 Year of Culture initiative, it has launched its very first competition titled “Cricket Contemporary Photography”.

Qatar-based photographers are invited to submit photos and videos on cricket for a chance to a prize from Qatar Museums.

Although cricket originated in south-east England, it has become India’s most popular sport, even more than the national sport hockey.

Photographs and videos submitted for review may depict any location in Qatar where the community plays cricket, including professional or friendly matches that portray themes such as: competition, sportsmanship, passion, loss, and triumph.

Photography has always been an integral part of the Year of Culture program. Every year, photographers are encouraged to use their imagery to introduce audiences to the cultural elements of both Qatar and partner countries, thus fostering mutual appreciation and understanding between the people. Since cricket is a sport that really brings its players and fans together in vibrant and exciting environments, it’s the ideal subject for a photography contest.

The Years of Culture initiative, spearheaded by QM, is an annual series of bilateral, cultural exchange programmes with a partner country. It is designed to deepen understanding between nations and their people through mutual exchanges of arts, culture and heritage.

Friday early mornings are usually when you’d find several groups of people from expat communities batting and bowling on open grounds (you’re welcome). The deadline for submissions is March 31 and participants are required to be residents of Qatar.
Free. Submissions until March 31. Qatar Museums. For list of requirements and other information:
