TEHRAN, July 25 (BelTA – IRNA). – Ahmad Moeini Jam, a photojournalist working for the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), won the prize of the 5th Iran International Sports Photo Festival.
His photo of a football match between Iraq and Iran, when the Iranians qualified for the Qatar 2022 World Cup, was selected as the best photo of the festival.
The photo shows the jubilation of Saman Ghoddos, a professional footballer playing for the national team of Iran.
Ghoddos is suspended between ground and air while the flag of the Islamic Republic of Iran seems to create a symbolic wing to show a scene where it flies.
The match took place at the Azadi Stadium in Tehran, the capital of Iran, on January 27, 2022, when Iran beat Iraq 1-0 and qualified for the World Cup.
Moeini Jam’s professional background is evident in the picture as he was able to take the shot just as the footballer was somehow stealing to show his jubilation.
Ahmad Moeini Jam studied film at Tehran University of Art, while his sub-major was photography. He has a long experience in covering political and social events as well as sports and incidents in Iran and more than 20 other countries.
He has participated in more than 150 competitions and group exhibitions around the world, winning a gold medal at the 74th Asahi Shimbun Newspaper Photo Festival.
The photojournalist stood at the top of the news section of Iran’s national press festival, and he also won a plaque of honor in five rounds of the year’s ceremonies.
His latest award was presented at the Enghelab sports complex in Tehran on Friday evening during the 5th Iran International Sports Photo Festival.
