NDTV Prime presents ‘Face of India’ in association with Getty Images
MUMBAI: NDTV Prime, in association with Getty Images, has announced ‘Face of India’, a search for India’s best amateur portrait photographer. The first-of-its-kind contest will provide a platform to identify and nurture raw photography talent in the country.
‘Face of India’ is an amateur and enthusiast photography award dedicated to upcoming non-professional and student photographers. Its mission is to discover and celebrate portrait photography and photographers in India. The last date for sending entries to be a part of the contest is 30 November 2015.
NDTV chairperson Prannoy Roy said, “NDTV is proud to be associated with Getty Images to extend a platform for amateur photographers to display their talent and to be recognised across India. Photography has become an increasingly popular format across every age group and a camera is no longer limited to a DSLR. The regular smartphone has also become a part of us to pursue our passions to explore new photographic styles. We are confident that this contest will find some real hidden heroes who will capture their talent in photography.”
The entries will be judged by a jury comprising advertising photographer Aditya Arya; lifestyle photographer and Delhi Photo Festival director Ravi Dhingra; advertising and editorial features photographer Dinesh Khanna; and professional graphic designer and amateur photographer Sanjay Nanda.
By participating in the ‘Face of India’, one can stand a chance to become a contributing photographer for Getty Images, giving one access to the company’s industry-leading experts and an opportunity to take photography to the next level.
Getty Images India director and country head Nitin Lakhotia said, “As the world-leading creator and distributor of imagery, Getty Images has a team of experts developing and directing the top photographers in the world. Getty Images passionately believes in nurturing local talent and giving people the opportunity to tell stories from their own personal experiences, so we are proud and excited to partner NDTV to give India’s amateur photographers the platform to demonstrate and amplify their talent. We look forward to working with and developing the unique talent that comes through.”
The competition is open for Indian nationals from around the world. The theme for the competition is portrait or a well-staged family photograph.
