The photos will be transferred into an application through which participants can gather votes.
Expressing his excitement over this tie-up with Drik Gallery and Mr. Shahidul Alam, Robi Chief Marketing Officer, Pradeep Shrivastava, said that he expected to see rush of images through this completely online campaign. “The youth in our country are tech-savvy and using technology to express themselves like no other generation before them. The power of the internet and the power of imagination collide to good effect through this campaign.” he added.
The first prize is a 1-year scholarship at Pathshala (Drik Gallery), however, this prize will be based on judge’s choice rather than the most ‘votes’. The other two prizes are Canon EOS 60D camera and a Canon EOS 600D camera, which will be given based on popular choice.
At the end of the campaign, the photographs will be displayed at a special exhibition at Drik Gallery in Dhanmondi.
