The picture titled ‘Blooming Friends’ by Shaiq Bashir is the winner of Gulf Times Instagram contest’s seventh installment.
Bashir, a Pakistani expatriate living in Qatar for three years, is working as instrument maintenance superintendent with Qatar Fertiliser Company.
He says the photo of marigold flowers was taken in his garden in Mesaieed during the last winter.
The photo shows the vibrant colours of the flowers grown in a desert country like Qatar and Bashir says the picture could encourage citizens and residents to take up gardening.
The winning entry was among the 14 photographs selected for the contest.
The eighth installment of the Instagram competition starts today. Send in your photos shot in Qatar to [email protected]
Selected pictures will be posted on the Gulf Times Instagram account, with the name of the photographer mentioned.
The picture that gets the maximum number of likes and comments during a seven-day period will be declared the winner.
A like will get the picture one mark and a comment will fetch two marks.
The winning picture will be published in the Gulf Times print edition as well as on the web edition of Gulf Times, along with a short bio of the photographer.
A winner will be announced every fortnight.
