Huawei officially kicks off the HUAWEI XMAGE Awards 2023

Huawei officially kicked off the HUAWEI XMAGE Awards 2023. As Huawei’s open platform for smartphone photographic excellence, the annual competition celebrates inspiration and creativity, through amazing photos and videos captured with Huawei devices around the world.

On the occasion, last week HUAWEI Community has invited photography enthusiasts to the HUAWEI XMAGE Smartphone Photography Workshop in Dubai. The workshop included the new HUAWEI P60 Pro exclusive hands-on experience and was hosted by celebrated photographer Sameh Houssny Aly Abdullah on At The Top, Burj Khalifa.

The event empowered twelve photography enthusiasts, selected amongst HUAWEI Community members in the UAE, with new skills and techniques for capturing stunning images using just their smartphone cameras. Participants enjoyed an informative and engaging session focused on the art of smartphone photography, with hands-on practice and personalised guidance from the seasoned photography expert.

The workshop had a pre-release experience of the new flagship HUAWEI P60 Pro. The participants learned how to take advantage of the exceptional capabilities of the Ultra Lighting XMAGE Camera of the HUAWEI P60 Pro. They acknowledged their excitement in being able to zoom in on faraway subjects with the telephoto lens and take pictures with remarkable detail.

In addition to skill-building, the workshop offered participants the opportunity to network with like-minded photography enthusiasts. After the workshop, the participants put their newfound skills to the test with a sunset photography session on At the Top, Burj Khalifa. Participant feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with many expressing their excitement to apply what they learned to their photography endeavours.

This year’s competition has the following categories: Night Walk, Portrait, Art & Fashion, Outdoor, Hello Life, Storyboard, Action and Storytelling. Night Walk is a new category, encouraging users to photograph the hidden wonders of nightlife, using Huawei’s unique night-photo settings.

This year, the following prizes will be given out to outstanding submissions: 3 Grand Prize winners, 24 Best-in-Category winners, 27 Runner-up winners, and 5 Honourable Mentions. Winners can receive up to USD 10,000 in prize money. The XMAGE Awards Submissions globally will be open till August 15th, 2023. Users can visit the unified global submission channel for their submission, as well as submit their entry via HUAWEI Community.
