Winners of The 12th All Gujarat Photography Competition by Manavpratishthan - theme 'Utsav'

After photography was considered as an art and not just a news piece information, enthusiasts and professional photographers came up with aesthetics to define its profoundness. With the closing of India’s oldest and one of the world’s earliest photo studio, ‘Bourne & Shepherd’, the importance of inheriting and prolonging the legacy of photography is now in active awareness. Manav Pratishthan has been striving since a long time to promote the idea of preserving photography and this competition is a part of that idea. This is 12th consecutive year for the competition, and this year the theme given to participants was ‘Utsav’ meaning ‘celebration’.

The prodigy photographers who have contributed their masterpiece in the competition are coming from different background and not just professional photography. We are glad that many of the competition winners have been published on Creative Yatra earlier. Check Vanishing Art of Kusti  and Hand Block Printing from our archives.

These photographs will be put up as part of an exhibition on August 19, 2016 at Ravishankar Raval Kala Bhavan between August 19 and 21, 2016.
