It underscores the notion that every aspect of the Kingdom holds the potential to become a masterpiece.

Beyond the artistic recognition, the Kingdom Photography Award offers participants an enticing prize – winners stand a chance to receive 20,000 SAR and gift vouchers worth an additional 20,000 SAR. The winner will also receive mentorship programs provided by esteemed professional photographers.
