  1. why the hell does some need to swear? no need

  2. Thanks for the info! I am definitely going to participate :)

  3. How can a simple informative post like that upset people so much?

  4. This Azaiba photography club is only for the Omani locals. Will they accept pictures from the Expats. Or in the first place are expats allowed to participate in this competition. Please advise. Thanks and Regards.

  5. Hi. I've enrolled and I am an expat, they haven't advised that its for Omanis only. Also keep in mind that Saturday is the last day to submit your enrollment form! So hurry! Really do contact Ahmed on the details Sythe provided, he responds almost immediately! The best of luck!

  6. Its for all residents in Oman, not just Omanis.
    Date of registration has been extended till the 4th of April 2011

  7. I spoke to Mr.Ahmed and sent all my details to them via email as asked. I hope this means that I am registered. The places to shoot as informed are Yiti, Kharan, Sifah and Sifah Project Building from 5th to 20th April only. Please advise if someone has more info on this.

  8. There will be a meeting at the Photography club today for participants in Atheiba at 7:15 .. it will be presented by Muriya to explain the competition.

  9. The Muriya letter states the last day of submission of photos to Photography Club is 5th May. We were told at the meeting that the last date of submission is 20th April. Can someone clarify this please ?

  10. The place is still not ready to be shot ! There is all around construction going on with debris. the ladders, equipments, plastic sheets, and all sorts of material is lying on the villas and vicinity with no boats in the Marina. No villa is ready complete which can be shot properly from outside or inside. At night only the pathway lights are on. A professional shoot of the architecture cant be done like. Any suggestions or comments are most welcome.

  11. The deadline for submitting the images is the 20th April not the 5th of May.

  12. sorry for the mix up
