Tanziral Dilshad Ditan, founder of KrayonMag says, "Times have changed, now our daily companions are the mask and pocket sanitizer we keep with ourselves, and it has altered our lifestyles exceedingly. But, in the midst of it all, we still need to survive, which is why we are organizing this event, which will be able to illustrate the new normal that we are encountering."
Mozammel Haque, Lecturer at ULAB quotes, "Photography is about freezing the time. These boys and girls will capture the changing times in their frames. Years later when we will forget about this current situation, these sole pictures will be our memories of Corona."
Since 1839, August 19 has been observed as World Photography Day. The day is celebrated in more than 170 countries around the world in honor of those who have worked relentlessly for the advancement of photography. It will be KrayonMag's first initiative on the occasion of World Photography Day. Backpage PR will be the PR partner of this event while EMK Center will be the digital platform partner.
