This year’s theme for FOCI is “A Slow Re-emergence.” As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to be a dominating force for many globally, this year’s captures will focus on how nations across the world have contended and persevered in the face of the pandemic as they move slowly towards reopening society.
We encourage all those who would like to participate in taking creative liberties with this year’s theme and submitting photographs that they think best capture how societies and people across the world are slowly getting back to normal. To enter this year’s contest, please upload your photographs to Instagram and tag our organizational account at “@QatarAmerica” with the hashtag #FOCI2021.
The last day for submissions is Monday, August 16th, 2021. Winners will be announced on World Photography Day on August 19th, 2021.
