OPPO, is taking smartphone photography expertise to students across the UAE, as part of its OPPO Week university tour to equip the country’s youth with photography skills.
The tour will visit eight universities, giving students the opportunity to learn more about capturing professional-level images with smartphone cameras. Students have the chance to win prizes for their photographs, with one overall winner to be announced at the end of the tour in April.
The tour will visit Heriot-Watt University, Middlesex University, BITS Pilani Dubai, University of Wollongong Dubai, American University of Sharjah, Manipal University, SAE Institute, and Amity University Dubai.
Each leg of the tour will see OPPO spend a week at the university. Activities will include a workshop and photography competition on campus, with mobile photography techniques taught by a professional photography instructor. Students will then be able to use OPPO smartphones to take photos during OPPO Week. All photographs shared on social media will be entered into the OPPO Week photography competition, with one prize during each OPPO Week, plus an overall winner at the end of the tour.
Ethan Xue, President of OPPO Middle East and Africa (MEA), addd: “OPPO believes in the power of youth and the spirit of creation – which, when combined, become an unstopped force of innovation. This is something that we aim to encourage through our latest OPPO Reno smartphone series, which provides young people with the means to experience their world in a new light, through groundbreaking photography capabilities. The OPPO Week tour is an opportunity for us to inspire students, to teach them how to get the most out of their mobile photography, and to encourage them to look at the world through a new lens – through the Reno smartphone series.”
