So, the second version of the Photo contest that we conducted ought to be larger and wider. Accordingly, we made some changes in the rules and invited participants active on all forums (not just insta) to share the images with captivating captions with us. The impact of this change was evident from Day 1. We got more than 210 entries in just 20 days this time (compared to 30 days last time around). Not just the size but the variety was also greater this time. Images from all across the world were shared, ranging from Iceland to Sikkim to Karnataka to J&K to Kerala…The spread was simply awesome!
We have again had multiple heartbreaks in shortlisting the finalists after such an overwhelming response.
The process would be similar like last time:
- Our judge will pick the top 3 winners.
- We also have the famous Viewers’ Choice Prize "a voucher of 5K"!
Here are the nominations and remember that you don’t just need to smile over them but also vote for your favourite one :)
Voting option available till 6th May 2330 Hrs. The entry that receives maximum votes would win the Viewer’s Choice Prize.
All winners would be announced on 10th May 2017
