Brief Description/ Remarks:

The Department of Journalism and Mass Communication organized a Photography Competition on March 25, 2023, at 10:30 AM for the UG and PG students of Mandsaur University. The theme for the competition was to encourage students to capture the vibrancy and energy of urban life, from bustling city streets to quiet alleyways. Moreover it aimed to capture the essence of a person, or a particular type of person (e.g. children, elderly individuals, or people from a certain culture).

The competition was held virtually, and students participated by submitting their entries through a Google Form. The event was designed to make participants aware of aesthetic photography vis a vis candid and street photography. A total of 40 students participated in the competition and demonstrated their interesting and creative photography skills.
