Aspiring local photographers encouraged to capture their summer fun on camera

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but your pictures could be worth much more if you enter MORE Café and DUCTAC’s Photography Competition this summer.
The theme of the competition is ‘Summer Fun’, so whether you’re having fun in the sun here in the UAE, or vacationing further afield, they want to see what you see during the summer! Wherever you are in the world, get snapping and send them the results. Spectacular or mundane – the view from the Burj Khalifa or the queue for the Metro, from desert sands to ocean shores – capture the people and places that make your summer fun. Interpret the theme as you please – symbolic, figurative and abstract portrayals are all welcome.

To enter

Simply log on to, upload your photos and fill in the online form before 30th August, 2012. Then, you just need to cross your fingers and wait for the winners to be announced.

Open to all UAE residents aged 8 and above

The competition will be split into three age categories, with an array of prizes up for grabs for the winners of each. The winner of the age 8 – 12 category will be able to hone their creative skills at Digital Photography for Kids and Expressive Art for Kids courses at DUCTAC, Mall of the Emirates, as well as inviting 9 of their friends to MORE Café for ice cream. The winning Teen (Aged 13 – 17) and Adult (18+) will each win a Digital Photography course at DUCTAC, plus Brunch for six and Afternoon Tea for four at MORE Café.

The best entries will be exhibited in the Gallery of Light at DUCTAC in Mall of the Emirates. The overall winners will be announced on the opening night of the exhibition on 18th September, 2012 and will go on to take pride of place on the walls of MORE Café.

The competition is part of MORE Café’s ongoing support for the arts in the UAE.

MORE Café has always supported creativity and the arts and, like DUCTAC, we strive to provide a platform for local people to express themselves artistically. We are so proud to be working with our neighbours at DUCTAC to encourage aspiring artists here in the UAE. The café walls and space have always been a canvas for artists to display and expose their work, and we’re so excited to see the UAE’s best photographic talent on display at MORE Café.– Marijke Lap, MORE’s Principal
