NDTV Prime presents ‘Face of India’ in association with Getty Images

 MUMBAI: NDTV Prime in association with Getty Images, the world leader in visual communication, announces Face of India, the search for India’s best amateur portrait photographer. It is a first of its kind contest that will provide a platform to identify and nurture raw photography talent in the country.

 Face of India is an amateur and enthusiast photography award, dedicated to shining a spotlight on upcoming non-professional and student photographers. It has one mission; to discover and celebrate portrait photography and photographers in India. The last date for sending entries to be a part of the contest is 30th November, 2015.

 The entries will be judged by a renowned jury consisting of Aditya Arya, known for his advertising photography work; Ravi Dhingra, a versatile lifestylephotographer and the festival director for the Delhi Photo Festival; Dinesh Khanna,  a photographer who has been extensively involved in creating images for advertising and editorial features; Sanjay Nanda, a graphic designer by profession but a passionate photographer along with a bevy of international photographers will be focussing their lens on exploring new talent.

 By participating in the ‘Face of India Portrait Photography Competition’, you stand a chance of becoming a “Contributing Photographer for Getty Images”, giving you access to the company’s industry-leading experts and an opportunity to take your photography to the next level.

Speaking on the contest NDTV chairperson Prannoy Roy said, “NDTV is proud to be associated with Getty Images to extend a platform for amateur photographers to display their talent and to be recognised across India.  Photography has become an increasingly popular format across every age group and a camera is no longer limited to a DSLR. The regular smartphone has also become a part of us to pursue our passions to explore new photographic styles. We are confident that this contest will find some real hidden heroes who will capture their talent in photography’’ 

 Getty Images, India director and country head Nitin Lakhotia said, “Imagery is the most spoken global language of our time, with more people creating more imagery than ever before. As the world-leading creator and distributor of imagery, Getty Images has a team of experts developing and directing the top photographers in the world. Getty Images passionately believes in nurturing local talent and giving people the opportunity to tell stories from their own personal experience, so we are proud and excited to partner with NDTV to give India’s amateur photographers the platform to demonstrate and amplify their talent. We look forward to working with and developing the unique talent that comes through.”

 The competition is open for Indian nationals only from around the world. Portrait is the theme for the competition as they are more complex than just a beautiful face, or a well-staged family photograph. A skillfully captured portrait has the power to move us through its expression and mood. Portraits speak of happiness, sadness or reveal a distant thought within the subject’s glance, an untold story is heard.
