ArtTalks Curates EU Photography Competition 2012

For the fourth consecutive year, the European Union in Egypt has sponsored its annual EU Photography Competition, encouraging amateur Egyptian photographers to take on their cameras. This year’s theme – New Egypt, was particularly important as it asked the photographers to share their thoughts about their country following the January 2011 revolution. Thirty winners were selected and ArtTalks curated the 2-week exhibition that took place at the Ambassador’s residence.
