Photography Competition


Greeting Shutterbugs!

The English Literary Society of Miranda House invites you to participate in our Annual Literary Festival, ‘Refugees: In Between Lives and Lands.’

The theme for the photography competition is, “The Inheritance of Loss”. Refugee Crisis is the most tragic reality of our times. Great uncertainty and precarity are the products of this loss of lives and lands hitherto known.
This loss though inestimable and unfathomable, desperately needs representation and delineation. The loss does not necessarily bear a negative connotation and can also be a step towards a brighter journey.
Abstraction is the basis of any art form. Hence, we hope to see you capture the essence of loss in your understanding.
So, let us reduce this distance but putting a lens in between.

Rules for the competition :

• A maximum of 4 photographs can be submitted by each participant.

• The photographs should be renamed in the format YOURNAME_number of the picture.

• Participants have to mention their name, college name, year and their contact number.
