Framing the LORD
Bappagraphy, a photography contest for amateur and skilled shutterbugs, invites you to display your perfect shots of the Ganesh festival
With a camera trained on the gulal in the skies, the diyas lit up in a pooja thali, the benevolent eyes of Lord Ganapati smiling at the devout or kids gorging on modaks — the 10-day Ganesh Utsav, has all the elements to clap that perfect shot.
If you are an amateur or skilled (professional) photographer, then here’s your chance to reach out to a larger audience.
“‘Bappagraphy’, jointly organised by Dreams 2 Reality & Wide Wings Media, is a five-year-old competition for newbies and the veterans who have been capturing the festival for years now,” explains Kushal Khot of Wide Wings Media.
The competition has been inviting entries from across the state so far and this year, Maharashtra Mandals operating abroad can also send their snapshots.
“Each participant can send three photographs of the festivities, which will be judged by noted photographer Milind Dhere. The selected photographs will be displayed at a three-day exhibition to be held at Raja Ravi Varma Art Gallery at Ghole Road,” adds Khot.
The organising team has also planned a ‘Bappagraphy Photowalk’ on September 2 along with Dhere. Interested participants can download registration forms from www.d2rpune.com, which will be available from August 24. Last date for registration is September 10.
