Theme of the year

Reinventing Imagery

The AJPA 2016 photography award aims at establishing a platform of creativity through image making which will give opportunities for established and emerging artists. Artists residing in Saudi and from all over the GCC are encouraged to apply.

This year’s AJPA aims to uncover modes of production and participation in overlapping fields of culture, urbanism and social experimental photography or the use of alternative process techniques of image making. The goal is to encourage artists to break away from the familiar and commercial ways of looking at and using images through art.
