Doha Youth Innovation Photography Award 2019

Young people acquire a wide creative energy that has been manifested in their artistic, literary, intellectual and cultural production in general. This has made a distinctive impact on the cultural activity in the Islamic societies and led to the promotion of cultural diversity, intellectual and artistic openness, creative interaction among artists and the dissemination of identity elements in their creations, so that communities preserve their identity since Youth is the power of the nation.

Therefore, the Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum, an international organization affiliated to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, invites the youth of Islamic countries to participate in the Doha Youth Innovation Award, which will be distributed during the conclusion of Doha Capital of Islamic Youth, January 17, 2020.
