Hyderabad, Aug 11 (ANI): To mark the upcoming World Photography Day, Indian Photo Festival (IPF) in association with HMDA and CREDAI Hyderabad, unveiled nominations for the upcoming IPF ‘Photographer of the Year’ award. All the nominated photographs will be showcased at the State Art Gallery, Madhapur from August 19 and till September 19. In its 1st edition, IPF selected 5 nominations each, across 8 categories. The final winners will be announced in a gala event to be held in Hyderabad in September. Sharing his views, Director General of NIUM Arvind Kumar said, “Hyderabad has marked itself on the global map with regards to IT, infrastructure, entertainment etc. But the city is so much more than this. Our rich heritage and culture getting showcased at distinguished international artistic platforms like IPF and IPF ‘Photographer of the Year’ Award, helps us take Hyderabad beyond the geographical boundaries. The state government is doing this on the occasion of ‘Swatantra Bharat Vajrotsavalu’ to showcase the best talent in photography.” “Receiving entries from across 85 countries for our first edition was an overwhelming response. The submissions were outstanding and did pose a challenge for the jury to select nominations as some of the works submitted was simply remarkable. We are sure to scale up these awards year on year in the benefit of the photography community,” said Aquin Mathews, Founder and Director, Indian Photo Festival.
