Thumbhi Photo Contest
Expressions 2012 – Tumbhi Photography Contest

Deadline April 5th


Nature and Wildlife Special
Photography is more than an art which takes us places unexplored, undiscovered and never thought of! For a photographer, it’s nothing else but giving your own eyes to the world. You can show them what you saw – in that very moment, when you were right there, exactly in front of your subject – with a camera in your hand! We thought of bringing together many such magical moments by the way of Expressions 2012- Tumbhi Photography Contest-Nature and Wildlife Special.

Thumbhi photo contest welcomes, anything you find beautiful in Nature and Wildlife category. This may include landscapes, seascapes, orange sunrises, golden sunsets, wild-remote-vivid places, stars and moons, dark or fair clouds , animals beautiful in their own way of violence or innocence, their mating or fighting, the flying birds or the new born chicks, beaks or wings, ants or whales, anything natural and admirable!

Super 25 Shortlists Announcement: 30th April 2012
Winners Announcement: 10th May 2012

The  contest invites entries in two categories: Nature and Wildlife.

Nature Photography
Nature  photographs include photographs taken outdoors. Photos in this category display  natural elements such as landscapes, wildlife, plants, and close-ups of natural  scenes and textures. In Nature photography, more emphasis is put on the  aesthetic value of the photo than other photography genres, such as  photojournalism and documentary photography.

Wildlife  Photography
Photographs in this  category capture animals in action: such as eating, fighting, or in journey.  Such photos are usually shot in the wild. However, game farms are also a  frequent location for wildlife photography.
