Vahid Bećirović Won First Prize in Weekend Photography Course at IUS

“PROF Komunikacije”, the PR Agency from Sarajevo, organized a free workshop titled: “Weekend Photography and Videography Course – The Powerful Means of Visual Communication” at the International University of Sarajevo (IUS). The workshop was held on January 19 and 20, 2018, and was hosted by IUS Life – Lifelong Learning Center.

“We are very pleased to have many young people who applied for this workshop not just from Sarajevo, but also from other BH cities, which means that interests for photography is really high. That gives us additional motivation to organize projects such as this. Nowadays, we are all doing a bit of photography with our phones, yet we know little or almost nothing about fine art or commercial photography”, said Alisa Vrabac from PROF Komunikacije.

The participants of this workshop had a great chance to have Ensad Adilović Kina as their instructor, who is a professional photographer with 40-year experience, from whom they could learn a lot.We believe that many of them will find themselves in photography, and that for some this workshop will decide their vocation.

“IUS Life is always on a mission of educating and inciting innovation, creativity and artistic expression with youth”, said Mirsada Mehremić, Assistant to Director of IUS Life.

The workshop topic was “Sarajevo postcards” and participants’ task was to make photos and thus convey their own interpretation of Sarajevo.

Since a great number of outstanding photos were made, it was decided to announce the five best photos.

The winner of the competition was Vahid Bećirović from Sarajevo with his photo “Sebilj”, who was awarded a camera. The second best was Ednan Hodžić from Visoko with his photo “Ćevapi - Sarajevian Brand”, whilst Dragana Maunaga from East Sarajevo came third for her photo “Enternal Flame – A Compas”. The fourth best photo “Sarajevo – The City of Love” was made by Zejneb Musić from Maglaj, and fifth place went to Ismar Mehremić from Sarajevo for his photo “Vils”.

All participants recieved certificats of attendance.
