CONTEST For best wedding photographers
K odak India comes up with the second edition of its ‘India's best wedding photographer of the year' contest for Indian citizens, in association with the magazine Better Photography.
The contest aims to recognise those who capture moments and make them timeless in weddings. Contestants can participate in multiple themes with a maximum of four entries for a theme. The six first-prize winners of each theme will compete for the title ‘Wedding Photographer of the Year 2010' through a face-off.
Participants can submit their entries online on www.betterphotography.in/wpoy and upload their images. Participation forms are also available at select Kodak labs and in the latest issue of Better Photography. Photographs printed on Kodak Paper must be sent by courier / post / or hand-delivered to Infomedia18 Limited, Better Photography, Ruby House, J.K. Sawant Marg, Dadar (W), Mumbai – 400 028. The last date to submit entries is February 10. The photographers will be judged under six categories — bridal portraiture, family and friends, behind the scenes, couple portraiture, emotions and photo series, in a single wedding. Entries will be judged on the basis of interpreting and expressing the theme, along with the technical and aesthetic quality of the photograph.
