IndiaShots is an online photo contest that focuses on India and its people. The objective is to present the distinctive culture and beauty of India to the world and also to see India as seen by you.
IndiaShots encourages spontaneity, clarity, composition and the ability to capture a distinctive moment. Technical ability, while important, is not the primary criteria for a winning shot. Show us your passion for photography and your ability to see more than the ordinary.
The 2011 contest has 5 categories: “Nature”, “Only in India”, “People”, “Stray Dogs” and “Travel”.
Contest submissions will be accepted till 30th November 2011. 10 finalists will be selected from each category (for a total of 50 finalists) and published on IndiaShots by 15th December 2011. All finalists will be notified via email.
Visitors to the website will be able to vote for the best photo among the 50 finalists for a period of 15 days.
The photo with the highest number of votes will get the “Readers Best” award of Rs. 3000.
IndiaShots judges will select one photo from each 5 categories for a “Best of Category” award of Rs. 3000.
All 5 “Best of Category” award winners and the “Readers Best” award winners will be notified by 31st December 2011. All winning entries will be published on IndiaShots.
