After receiving such a huge response from 50 countries last year, “Click a Smile” is back with hopes and opportunities. The exclusive panel of judges will be gracing the competition, with their skills to assess the photographs clicked by the professional and amateur photographers, as the competition is open for all.
There were more than 1,400 people who participated in the competition last year. With the panel of expertise like Kanick Samuel, Suresh V.B and Vicky Roy, the bar of the competition has raised where more people are expected to participate this year than the last.
Kanick Samuel is the Senior Creative Director at JWT Bangalore; Suresh V.B is a professional photographer who graduated from CKP and worked for a decade with O&M; Vicky Roy was selected by the US-based Maybach Foundation to click the photographs of rejuvenating World Trade Centre, back in 2008 and record the history.
