Photographers to capture cleanliness

A group of students from an Assam varsity has teamed up with Monolith Festival currently going on at Khasi Heritage Village Mawphang in Meghalaya with a novel idea to involve amateur photographers in the government’s cleanliness campaign ‘Swatch Bharat Abhyan.’

The event christened “Capturing Pixels 2016” (CP 2016) is organised by six fourth semester students of M.A Mass Communication at Assam Don Bosco University Guwahati.

“We want everyone to participate in the cleanliness programme using smart phones,” says event coordinator of “CP 2016” Miss Patricia Swer explaining the competition concept which makes photography accessible to common people.

“Our aim is to widen the cleanliness campaign platform to passionate photographers who may not own a professional DSLR camera but have even a smart phone,” says Miss Steffi Soibam member of “Six Innovative Ideas.”

The CP 2016 event consists of competition and exhibition held during the “Monolith Festival” at Khasi Heritage Village, Mawphlang on 1st and 2nd April.

The competition theme “cleanliness” is in parallel with the festival aim which is striving to make the culture festival as the cleanest event by making it plastic bag free.

The winners of the photography competition will be awarded on the last day of the festival, 2nd April.
