Now it is time to have your say: View and vote for your favourite image(s) at

The jury has selected 19 outstanding images which creatively engage with themes of inequality and diversity, going far beyond the clichéd representations of India so often found in the media, tourism brochures or charity advertisements.

The ten photos with the most “likes” will receive prize money. A jury prize will also be awarded.

Voting closes on Monday 19 September at 12 noon (German time).

The jury would like to send out a big THANK YOU to all participants! They were overwhelmed by the number and quality of entries for this year’s competition.
