CeMIS International Photo Competition 2020 “India at Work”

CeMIS International Photo Competition „India at Work“ postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone the CeMIS International Photo Competition "India at Work".
We intend to reopen the competition at a later, more suitable date. Updates on a new submission deadline will be posted closer to the time on our Facebook page, Instagram account and here on our website.
All submitted images will be considered valid entries when the competition is reopened, unless the photographer contacts us to withdraw them.
Thank you for your understanding. Stay safe!
