Photography for Western Motorsports

As every time we say that we believe in giving chance to new comers so one day we thought why not give a chance to budding photographers to showcase their talent through our event. So then n there as always on phone the foundation of this photography competition which recently got over on 15th March 2010 was laid.

Within half n hour , a writeup was prepared , terms and conditions for the entries were discussed between me, Anukraman Sir and Anirban Sir and the competition was on air with me as its coordinator and the best part in which we at Western Motorsports are really good without thinking about its consequences. Just floated the competition and started waiting for the responses.
The time frame for entry submission was kept near about 2 months and we were hoping around 20-25 entries in this course of time and thought if we received these much entries our event is a hit.

And we started doing the most important part of our event that is Promoting it. Facebook , Orkut , mails, messages were all over the net. I would like to thank the team of motoroids.com, Mumbai weekend shoots , Delhi Bloggers and some other groups which helped us in promoting it.

I still remember when me and Anirban Sir were chatting on gtalk on the very last day of submission at around 11:15 P.M,we received around 15-18 entries within those 45 minutes as the competition was supposed to end exactly at 0000 Hrs and both of us were like "w00t???,what the hell is happening???"

At exact 0000 Hrs , I started counting the final entries and was overwhelmed to see such response from all the photographers from all over the country.From extreme north zones of India to down south , even we received one entry from a person living in Sweden and is going to come to India at the time of JK-Tyre The Monsoon Ride-2010.

We received around 78 entries out of which only 67 were accepted as rest of the entries were not in accordance with prerequisites of the event.I really feel bad for all those people who couldn't make it this time but there is always a next time and I hope you'll read all the terms and conditions carefully whenever you plan to participate in an event like ours.

Now as I told you earlier we never think about consequences , judging these entries is one hell of a task as we have to choose the best,have to stick to two main things which we have asked for in photographs i.e composition and timing. Our judges are gonna have a tough time for sure.

I want to congratulate all the photographers whose entries have been accepted and would like to wish them all the best for the results which will be out soon.Keep checking your mail inbox , our website and the facebook event page for more updates regarding this event and we promise you it will an experience of a lifetime and we'll try to give you a platform so that you can proceed and leave your mark in this field.

Till then , Keep Clicking.
