Tell your stories through photo essays!

Isn’t it the beauty of photography that helps you to preserve those magical moments of your life by creating another series of your journey stitched beautifully all together in one album. Just like painting, clicking pictures is also an art which everyone does not possess. But, if you have that talent to weave your story around a picture then your success is just a click away!

India’s biggest talent hiring platform, talentrack is giving an opportunity to all the photographers to participate in their FotoDiaries Contest under talentrack talkies. All you have to do is to select a theme, click pictures accordingly, upload and share it with your friends through your Facebook profile.

You can submit your entries by creating a photo essay based on any theme out of three themes – A Bicycle Journey, Father & Son or Street Food. To participate and to make your entry outstanding read the following rules;
