Hey all,

PaGaLGuY is
proud to announce its first ever Photography Competition exclusively for
Engineering Students. To be judged by none other than the Pulitzer Prize
nominee photographer Arko Datta.

Who can participate: If
you are studying in an engineering institute, be it an IIT, IIIT, NIT or in any
other Government or Private engineering college, this contest is for you.

What do you need:
Pretty little. You have a camera, great. You don’t have a camera,
better because all you need is just something that will go click click at
the right time and right place. And that need not be a smartphone either, just
any mobile camera will also do.

What can you photograph: You
can shoot almost anything, but it has to do with your campus life, may be
your campus walls, your college building, classrooms, stairways, corridors,
mess food, professors, your BFFs, etc.

Prizes: Cool ones. The best photo will go home with an Amazon-voucher worth of
Rs 5,000.
If you’ve just missed the First place, there is a voucher worth Rs
for the first runner-up. And hang on, there is a Third Prize too, a
voucher worth Rs 2,000 for the second runner-up.

Contest starts on February 15, 2016 an ends on March 16, 2016.
Send your photos to [email protected].

The Judge: Arko Datta’s photographs have been published in leading
newspapers and magazines like The New York Times, Washington Post, Guardian,
International Herald Tribune and on the covers of Time magazine, Newsweek, The
Economist and more.
