The winners of the Bahrainouna photography competition have been announced - and the pictures are stunning.

Sanaullah Muhammad Ali took home the Khalifa Shaheen Photography Award and BHD500 for his photo from inside a traditional dhow, while the second place went to Isa Saleh Isa Al Taraif.

Third place went to Ahmed Yusuf Ahmed Sayyar, who submitted a wonderful sunset photo.

Submissions started on January 8 and lasted for a whole month, with 210 photographers taking part.

A jury evaluated the works, and the public was also allowed to vote for their favourite, before the winners were picked.

Bahrainouna’s executive office director Hala Sulaiman said, “Bahrainouna Through Our Lens contest came within Bahrainouna’s Executive Office events and activities to raise and promote awareness on the national values, as well as creating engagement and interaction with and by the citizens and residents in the Kingdom.

“The Executive Office previously organised a contest on Instagram which had a great interaction.

“We are very pleased with the number and the quality of the creative works we received in the Photography and Videography contest, which proves that Bahrain is full of artistic talents that deserve recognition, and we look forward to organising more contests in the future.”
