Winning shot by Tanveer Hassan Rohan of Bangladesh
THE OIC youth wing based in Istanbul, Turkey held a worldwide photography contest “Photo4Tolerance” for Muslim youth in December last year.
The contest for youth from 16-35 years in age aimed to encourage the importance of dialogue in overcoming differences.
Tanveer Hassan Rohan from Bangladesh won the first place. İbrahim Aysündü from Turkey came in second and Irada Gadirova from Azerbaijan claimed third place. The winner was awarded a $2,500 prize and the second and third place winners were presented with $1,200 and $800, respectively.
The youth wing, Islamic Conference Youth Forum for Dialogue and Cooperation, was established in 2004 and granted affiliation to the OIC in 2005.
The Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) is an international organization with 57 member countries. The organisation states that it is “the collective voice of the Muslim world” and works to “safeguard and protect the interests of the Muslim world in the spirit of promoting international peace and harmony.” – MI Report
