Kuwaiti photographer won first prize in India

Kuwaiti photographer Mohammad Murad won the first prize in a nature photography contest on Monday, held in India with global participation. The results were announced at a live virtual event in India on November 22, 2021.

Mohammad Murad is the first Kuwaiti or perhaps the first Arab photographer to win the first prize in India's Nature inFocus Photography Contest. He won the first prize in the Animal Portraits category.

The photo of the Arabian Red Fox which deserved the first prize was taken from Kuwait.

India based 'Nature inFocus' is Asia’s premier nature and wildlife platform for passionate nature and wildlife photographers to showcase their work, learn from their peers, and highlight nature conservation. This year, the contest received over 10,000 entries from over 40 countries, the organizer said.

Regarding the first prize winning photo by Kuwaiti national Mohammad Murad, the organizer said that the photographer spent more than two months observing and documenting the behavior of Arabian Red Fox families near their dens in the Kuwait region. Although scared at first, the foxes became more comfortable around his presence after frequent visits. They even began to emerge from their dens when they heard the sound of his car and came close enough to inspect his camera gear.
