Dubai - UAE: 14 October, 2015 – Sony has today announced the launch of its ‘Sony FotoArabia Picathon 2015’ competition inviting photographers to document an aspect of their country and its people, creating a short story through their lens in order to capture the national pride of their chosen country.
