KUWAIT CITY, July 23: Kuwaiti photographer Majid Al-Zaabi expressed his elation on Saturday after he was named the winner of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) – based Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award (HIPA).
Al Zaabi, who won top honors in the “content creator” category, told KUNA that this year’s edition of HIPA was dedicated to nature and wildlife, saying he was glad to have been acknowledged in his quest to leave an indelible mark on the world of photography.
He cited social media as a useful tool for a photographer looking for global exposure, but warned that the platform can often be a “double-edged sword” if used improperly. The Kuwaiti photographer is no stranger to global accolades, having amassed a slew of international awards over the course of a journey that has spanned over two decades. (KUNA)
