About Chitranjali Photo Fest : Celebrating India’s Cultural Kaleidoscope

For over two decades, Chitranjali has been a beacon of artistic expression, bringing together photography enthusiasts from every corner of our diverse nation. With each passing year, we have celebrated the rich tapestry of India’s festivals, and this time, we’re thrilled to unveil our latest installment: “The Festivals of India.”

This competition is not just a contest; it’s a vibrant canvas where you can paint the vibrant colors of India’s festivals. From the sparkle of Diwali to the grandeur of Dussehra, the warmth of Christmas to the reverence of Guruparv, we invite you to capture the essence of every celebration that defines our nation. Whether it’s the kite-flying fervor of Makar Sankranti, the harvest joy of Pongal, or the arrival of spring on Basant Panchami, every festival is a story waiting to be told through your lens.

Chitranjali has always been a platform for photographers to showcase their talent and passion, and this year is no different. We believe in photography as an art form and a profession, and we’re here to nurture and celebrate the next generation of visual storytellers. So, if you have a camera and a heart full of creative energy, this is your stage to shine.

Our festival doesn’t just honor the winners; it honors the craft itself. We recognize the highest standards of photographic excellence, showcasing the work of both seasoned professionals and budding talents. Chitranjali bridges the gap between photographers and the world of galleries, educators, curators, and editors. We are here to foster a culture of photography that reflects the very soul of our nation.

Our esteemed panel of judges, with their wealth of experience and discerning eyes, will evaluate your submissions based on various criteria. From the play of light and brightness to the depth of imagination behind each image, from the connection with the subject to the originality and technique applied, we’ll be looking for that special spark that sets your photograph apart.

And let’s not forget the prizes! Chitranjali believes in rewarding excellence. Our winners can expect not only recognition but also exciting prizes that will further fuel their passion for photography.

So, dear photographers, whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting your journey behind the lens, Chitranjali Photo Fest beckons you to join us in celebrating India’s festivals through your unique perspective. Let’s capture the kaleidoscope of our culture, one click at a time.
