THE 2016 Etisalat Photography Competition has opened. Submission of entries for the contest which encourages emerging photographers to capture and celebrate fascinating pictures that reflect the diversity and daring spirit of Nigeria’s expressions opened on August 8 and will close on September 1.
The competition, which kicks off a series of activities leading to the opening of the 7th Etisalat-sponsored Lagos Photo Festival, has ‘Performance’ as its theme.
Speaking on this, Director, Brands & Experience, Etisalat Nigeria, Elvis Ogiemwanye, explained that, “This year’s edition of Etisalat Photo Competition is tagged ‘Performance’; action repeated constantly becomes a ritual, its transference into other spaces of engagement becomes a performance. We wish to explore further these performances through the strength of photography in depicting our daily routines and celebratory activities and expressions. Under the categories daily routines and celebratory, the competition serves as a platform fostering expressions and creativity at its peak.”
He added that Etisalat Photography Competition uses the power of photography to create compelling stories that encapsulate individual experiences and identities from across Africa.
