Phoenicia Hotel Art Photo (PHAP) Competition

Phoenicia Hotel Art Photo (PHAP) Competition

Rebecca Russo is Honorary Member of the Judges Board for the Phoenicia Hotel Art Photo (PHAP) Competition.
Building once again on its established reputation as an Art Hotel and supporter of artistic talent, the Phoenicia Hotel announces the launch of the Phoenicia Hotel Art Photo (PHAP) competition.
This initiative invites one artist per month to enjoy complimentary room and board for a night at the Phoenicia Hotel and to create a work of art using the medium of photography during the experience. Participating artists will compete for a grand prize of USD 5,000, which comes with a quirky twist: the prize money will be increased by the same amount in dollars as the room number allocated to the winning artist during their stay.
Judging of the 12 pieces of photo art will take place at the end of each year and will be followed by an exhibition of the works.
A limited edition of five prints of each of the 12 works will be made available for sale during the exhibition, with part of the proceeds going to the photographers and part to charities of their choice.

One photographer per month is invited to the Phoenicia Hotel to produce one Art Photo during a one-night stay.
An annual exhibition, displaying all 12 Art Photos, will be held at the end of the year. A judging panel will announce the winner for the year at the launch of the exhibition.
The Phoenicia Hotel is a place where anything can happen.
It could be magical, romantic, creative, intriguing, inspiring, mysterious… With the click of their fingers, prepare to be enchanted. The captured scene is transformed into art.
The judging panel includes the globally exhibited photographer Roger Moukarzel, Art Collector Tarek Nahas and Rebecca Russo, Art Collector, President of the Videoinsight® Foundation
