What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that's gone forever, impossible to reproduce.__ Karl Lagerfeld
The Art Jameel Photography Award (AJPA) is one of the Art Jameel Initiatives. AJPA’s mission is to discover emerging talents, develop their skills and exhibit exceptional photographs. It furthermore promotes the art of photography and the achievements of the finest photographers to a diverse audience.
AJPA is an extension of the Bab Rizq Jameel Photography Award, which was launched in 2010,providing not only an opportunity for talented young photographers to show their work to a wider audience, but also helping them to further their careers.
AJPA, launched by Art Jameel invites photographers, professionals and Amateurs alike to enter their work into the award competition. From 2013 the award has been opened up to not only Saudi nationals, as was the case previously, but to residents of all nationalities living in the KSA. The geographical scope is widened now in 2016 to also accept submissions from other parts in the GCC countries.
