My Masjid: Photograph competition and Islamic History Poster exhibition

The New Muslim Project (NMP) is organising a photograph competition and poster exhibition the theme for which is ‘My Masjid’. We want you to take a photograph of a historical Masjid near you. The photograph should highlight the beauty of Islamic architecture as well as showcasing your photographic skills. You may take a photograph of the Masjid’s front face, interior court yard or minaret. Alternatively, you may choose to focus on the entrance door, ceiling or pulpit highlight ancient carvings or beautiful calligraphy. The photograph may have been taken during the rainy monsoon season, cold snowy winter or hot summer months. The Masjid may be in a city, village, desert, mountain or forest. Email the photograph along with your name, date and time of photograph, camera type (any camera works), location and name of the Masjid along with a short interesting story (maximum 200 words) of the history of the Masjid (e.g. when it was built, who built it etc.). Email the photograph and the information (as to separate files) to masjid.art@gmail.com. The best photographs will be printed and displayed in a poster exhibition by the NMP in New Zealand for Muslims and Non-Muslims to experience the beauty of ancient Islamic architecture. Please do not send selfies and avoid taking photographs of people so as to respect others privacy. For more information on NMP activities visit our website at http://newmuslimproject.co.nz/. Please share this message (via WhatsApp, Viber, email etc.) to Muslim brothers and sisters across the world and encourage them to participate. The closing date for submissions is the 31st of May 2019.
