Market photography contest today

A PHOTOGRAPHY contest is being held today at the weekly farmers' market.

The market is being organised by the Municipalities and Urban Planning Affairs Ministry and held at the Agriculture Centre in Budaiya.

The competition will feature photographers taking shots of the market and the top three images will be announced in two months.

It is open to those aged between 14 and 20.

"The top three contest winners will be announced in the third week of February and their pictures will be displayed at the upcoming Bahrain International Garden Show at the end of the month," said ministry horticulturist Amani Abu Idris.

"The winners will also be awarded cash prizes."

The deadline to submit the images is February 15 and all entries, in high resolution, should be sent by e-mail.

"While the winning pictures will be turned into posters and displayed at the market and at the garden show, all other pictures submitted for the contest will be displayed at the ministry's stall at the show."

For more information, contact Ms Abu Idris on 17796689 and 39444231.

All entries should be sent to [email protected]
