Photography Competition and Exhibition – NEST India 2016

Nature and Environment Society of Thane (NEST) had organised a Photography competition cum exhibition. This was a very interesting event as it had 3 levels of elimination rounds. Also, the judging panel included some top notch names like Baiju Patil, Dhritman Mukharjee and Clement Francies.

Four of my images made it through the elimination rounds but lost out to the winners in the final. The extremely well presented exhibition took place in Vasai between January 26th to 28th 2017. I must say I was impressed by the way the exhibits were displayed, each image having ample breathing space and framed nicely with proper labeling and credits to the photographers. All credit to Sachin Main and his NEST team!!
