Nawras, a leading telecom operator in Oman, has opened the Sultanate’s first Instagram exhibition with 43 photos depicting ‘Oman’ at Muscat Grand Mall.

An independent panel of professional photographers selected the best 43 photographs from more than 2,300 submissions for display in the exhibition.
The top six photos were given additional recognition, with the overall winner receiving a Canon 5D Mark III professional camera to continue their passion for photography, while other the next five received iPhone 5S’s and a selection of other exciting prizes.
Greg Young, CEO of Nawras, said: “Instagram has changed the way people interact with one another and remains one of the main communication tools that continues to gain popularity. Continuously striving to bring our customers closer, we used Instagram to inspire creativity and showcase budding photographers.
“We are very proud to have organised the first Instagram competition in the Sultanate and we look forward to everyone being able to visit and enjoy the photos in the exhibition.”
The opening of the exhibition was held under the patronage of Sayyid Ibrahim bin Said bin Ibrahim Al Busaidi, Governor of Buraimi.
