National Geographic Abu Dhabi released Fel Sora - the region’s first Arabic-language reality TV series for children 7-13 years.
The new series is in partnership with Nikon, as both parties thought it was the most natural progression and expansion of “I am a Nat Geo Photographer” series, which they have closely developed together over the years.
Emirati director Omar Butti directs the six-episode series, which is produced locally.
Viewers are taken on a journey with seven young Arab photographers, from different nationalities, as they compete for the Best Photographer title.
Each 22-minute episode pushes the contestants to take on a new challenge in various locations across Dubai.
With an equal focus on education and entertainment, Fel Sora balances the theoretical and practical aspects of photography.
Contestants on the show had the opportunity to learn and be mentored by Nikon School’s teachers in the UAE as well as partner judges.
Winners are announced in the final episode, based on the cumulative points they earn from all their challenges.
Fel Sora’s Grand Prize is offered by Nikon and features advanced camera equipment.
The show will air daily on Nat Geo Kids Abu Dhabi at 5:00 pm UAE time/4:00 pm KSA time.
The episodes will also air simultaneously on National Geographic Kids Abu Dhabi YouTube channel.
