Event : “5th IIPC World Photography Day Annual Photo Contest-2011”

Celebrating 2nd Anniversary...


“5th IIPC World Photography Day Annual Photo Contest-2011”


Photography has been one of the strongest mediums of expression since its inception. Various associations have encouraged this medium significantly. But India International Photographic Council’s contribution for the promotion of this form of art is admirable. The IIPC’s ‘World Photography-Day Annual Photo Contest’ offers a platform to the art lovers, whether a novice, professional or a hobbyist to exhibit and shine their talent and knowledge.

The response of the participants towards “5th IIPC World Photography Day Annual Photo Contest-2011” was exciting this year too. A total of about 800 entries from nearly 60 participants covering more than 10 states were received in five categories, namely B/W Pictorial Photographs, Colour Pictorial Photographs, Nature, Photo-Journalism and Photo-Travel. About 230 photographs got acceptances out of received entries (800). 05 photographs received awards and about 15 photographs got Certificates of Merit. The award winners are:

(1). Mr. T. Veerabhadra Rao (Kakinada, A.P) for “Returning” (B/W Prints Section).
