Joy Caasi Wins Best Use Of Photography On #CosmoAwards 2016!
October welcomed us with sweet victory as our Certified Google Street View Trusted Photographer Joy Caasi won the Cosmo Award for Best Use of Photography. The ceremony took place at Noir Dubai in the beautiful Kempinski Mall of the Emirates Hotel with some of Dubai’s top digital influencers in attendance.
Joy was featured in the September issue of the Cosmopolitan Magazine, with the editor describing her as follows:
‘From the Philippines to our hearts, Joy compiles travel, lifestyle, food and even DIY ideas via bold, bright and punchy images. Many of her shots are fly-on-the-wall style, which we love, because they give an honest insight into what she’s blogging about (which as the blog name suggests, is the ultimate guide for people looking for a thrifty experience in the UAE and beyond – refreshing given the high-cost lifestyles that surround us here!).’
Joy was nominated by the Cosmo Middle East team alongside famous and talented Middle Eastern photographers Fatma Hilal, Tjasha Dzafic and Zahra Lyla.
With this prestigious award under her belt, she is continuing to explore a range new techniques and has shown a keen interest in 360-degree photography (such as Google Street View Trusted). She is currently the only female Google Certified photographer shooting in the UAE.
