Lagos photo festival receives sponsorship

20 October 2014, 09:01Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Etisalat Nigeria, the mobile network operator,  has announced the commencement of the fifth edition of the Lagos Photo Festival.

The telecommunications company reiterated its support for innovation and creativity in the country.  

The second phase of the festival, the country's biggest, will feature workshops on technique and style, photo exhibitions, discussion sessions and displays of large scale prints to reclaim and beautify public spaces within Lagos State.   
Chief Executive Officer of Etisalat Nigeria, Matthew Willsher, said Etisalat was passionate about innovation and creativity.

"We have also been in the forefront of promoting excellence, nurturing talent and providing platforms for people to express themselves and communicate their ideas. It is in this light that we have sponsored the LagosPhoto Festival right from inception about 4 years ago,” he said.

Willsher also indicated that a high level of participation had already been recorded in the Etisalat Photography Competition which is an integral part of the Lagos Photo Festival, noting that lots of entries are being uploaded regularly to the Official Lagos Photo Mobile App, which is powered by Etisalat.

Sequel to the opening events, the annual Lagos Photo fund-raising gala dinner will hold on October 31, 2014 to raise support for the artists whose images continue to push the boundaries of photography.

The fifth edition of Lagos Photo, which has the theme “Staging Reality, Documenting Fiction”, has been running since July this year when it was flagged off with the World Press Photo Exhibition and the Etisalat Photography Competition tagged "Mastering the Selfie."
