Oman Air adds its support to the Festival of World Travel and Photography
London, September, 2011: Oman Air has announced that it is supporting the Travel Photographer of the Year Festival of Photography and World Travel, which will be held at the Royal Geographical Society, London, on Sunday 25th September, Sunday 2nd October and Sunday 16th October 2011.
The Festival of Photography and World Travel follows on from the hugely successful Travel Photographer of the Year exhibition, which was co-sponsored by Oman Air, and which drew large crowds to the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in London earlier this year. It offers three days of photography and travel events featuring a fantastic line-up of speakers from the worlds of photography, film and TV, travel and exploration.
Rohan Alce, Oman Air’s Country Manager, UK and Ireland, comments:
“The Travel Photographer of the Year recognises the outstanding skills of photographers from around the world and the Festival of Photography and World Travel is a superb opportunity to find out more about how to experience the world around us and capture powerful images of it.
“Oman Air is proud to continue our support for Travel Photographer of the Year and we look forward to meeting travellers and photographers alike throughout the Festival.”
The Festival offers a series of talks, discussions and workshops led by leading experts from the fields of photography and travel. The programme is designed to appeal to both seasoned and armchair travellers, and to both experienced and novice photographers.
