Sìra –an arabic word meaning biography, story; a human life in its course- is a non-profit organization that seeks to create a platform for high quality photojournalism and documentary photography. In other words, we strive to present engaging images designed to tell stories and to give voice to the visual narrators of today.

We present rich visual narratives by photographers from all over the world. Some include in-depth reportage on the daily life of humans; environmental issues, accounts from war torn regions and untold stories from around the globe.

Through an extensive program of exhibitions and educational activities, the festival aims to be a platform that stimulates public dialogue, a force that supports the creation of new works and a picture show that appeals to professionals as well as those who love photography and are simply curious to discover the unknown that surrounds them.

Note that we only accept photojournalistic works and documentary photography. We will accept a series of portraits only if accompanied by a story.

Please, no art photography.

There is no theme.

This will be our first year launching this festival.
