HOW TO GET THERE

Over 200 submissions to the 2021 Sheikh Saoud Al Thani Single Image Award, curated by Photo Art Qatar

“Tasweer was created to champion the medium of photography and will serve as a resource for artists in Qatar and the region.  The development of this platform builds on the efforts of the past. The incorporation of the Sheikh Saoud Al Thani photography awards as part of this initiative is to increase the visibility of the talents that we have, and invest in the ecosystem for creative growth. The first photography award in Qatar was established more than twenty years ago — and as we look forward, we will continue to grow our collections and to support aspiring photographers and collectors.” 

 

-    Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani

The Sheikh Saoud Al Thani Award was first announced in 2001 as a platform to support photographers. The award has now been relaunched by Tasweer in its inaugural year, with the Saoud bin Mohammed Al-Thani Foundation, as annual open calls to photographers in Western Asia and North Africa (WANA), continuing its journey of celebrating and nurturing photographic talent. In October 2020, Tasweer announced the open call for applications to this single image award application and announced the awards jury and curators - the Photo Art Qatar collective; Adriane de Souza, Ammar Alqamash, Latifah Aldarwish, and Shaima Ayoub.  Their selection of the 10 award-winning single images are shown here.
