Photo Contest | Let’s Celebrate the Lesser Known Chandigarh in Photographs with CUF’20 and ChandigarhX

You have never stopped to admire tricity’s beauty and treasure your memories in photographs.

Now, let’s celebrate what is “lesser known”. Click photographs of OUR Tricity (Chandigarh, Mohali & Panchkula) for photo contest and win special recognition and prizes.

Let’s celebrate what should also be celebrated when we celebrate the marvel that is Chandigarh.

Let’s outgrow from ‘mine, yours, his, her’ and click photographs of what is “OURS” in Tricity.

Theme: Introducing Chandigarh to Chandigarh*

*Introducing Chandigarh to Chandigarh means bringing out lesser known beauty of this city to the fore. It is not limited to natural beauty in gardens, lake, forests or popular tourist spots like Rock Garden, Rose Garden, cafés, restaurants etc. It can be anything like an NGO working good for social cause, any personality, any achievement, any inspiring story, lesser trodden paths. ANYTHING and ANYONE that/who you feel should be celebrated.

Your imagination and your perspective are your limits to the options. 

DO WRITE in the box why this click is special? What’s the story behind?
