Doha Marriott Celebrates Qatar National Day | Through the Lens

In honour of Qatar National Day, the Doha Marriott Marketing team recently launched an online social media photography contest, with the aim of engaging the local community in capturing images that celebrate the beauty, culture and rich heritage of the country.

Working in partnership with the Qatar Youth Hobby Centre, the hotel launched the contest through its Facebook fan page on 10th November. With four categories in which to enter including Abstract, Landscape, Architecture & Culture, over 100 images were submitted. Due to the overwhelming response, and exceptional quality of images that were submitted, the team decided to add an additional category called ‘People’s choice’ where 12 images were uploaded on to the Facebook page, with the winner being chosen by the public.
