Photography and Dissemination Competition

Photography and Dissemination Competition
You will be happy to know that as part of the World Town Planning Day (WTPD) 2022 BIP is going to decorate several roundabouts and foot over bridges in Dhaka with banners and boards on 8th Nov 2022. Things will be there on road only from 6AM-6PM, 8th November 2022.
In this regard, BIP is requesting its members and students of URP departments to participate in the following competition.
What you have to do?
  • Take a quality photo of the banner/board in roundabout/foot over bridge on 8th November 2022.
  • Post it in your FB wall on 8th November 2022, preferably immediately after taking the shot. Please mention (immediately after your post) in the comment section, the location and time when the photograph was taken.
  • Take 5 different screen shots and a video of your post showing number of shares of the post and several comments in your post at 2PM, 9th November 2022.
  • Sent the scent shots and video to [ ] with subject as follows: [WTPD 2022 competition], by 3PM, 9th November 2022. Any submission without the stated subject line will not be considered.
  • In your email please write your full name, BIP membership number (if you are a URP student please write your student number and name of university).
  • You will be considered for competition as an individual, not based on the number of your photos/posts i.e. even if you take more than one shot in more than one location and make multiple posts in your Facebook, you will be considered once, only, for the competition.

How the adjudication will be done?
  • Quality of photograph
  • Number of shares of your post

How many prizes?
  • Small, token gift will be given to 10 best submissions
We are not disclosing in which roundabouts and foot over bridges there will be banners/bridges. So, to some extent your participation in the competition depends on luck! You may or may not find it on your trips on that particular day. Besides, those who will not be in Dhaka on that day will not also be able to participate. Hence, we understand the competition is biased, at least in terms of making equal opportunity to participate.
Yet we are throwing the competition to make planners aware of the day. Also, by your posts and shares of your posts other people will be aware of it.
If successful, we may extend such completion for other cities in Bangladesh!
