Birzeit University’s Media Department organized on December 9, 2014 a photo exhibition titled "Our Lives," featuring the outstanding work by students in photojournalism. Mobile phone company Jawwal sponsored the show.

In his opening address, the Media Department chair Bassam Owaidah said that the aim of this exhibition is to move from theory to practice, allowing students to benefit from expert critique. Thus, the exhibition is an attempt to integrate academia and practice.

Jawwal sponsorship officer Nasir Samhan said that the exhibition reflects trust and cooperation between the university and the company and that Jawwal offers a lot of communication services and welcomes sponsorship of similar projects in the university community.

Media Department teaching assistant Eyad Jadallah said that the exhibition displays 68 photos that represent certain aspects of Palestinian daily life with the goal of encouraging students to display their work.
