We have observed that currently we are engaged mostly in achieving acceptance based honors from national and international organisations. Those organisations also offer ‘portfolio honors’. Now a days some international salons also including portfolio contests. To participate in such salons (example: FIP photographer of the year) or achieving portfolio honors (FIP-EFIP/g/p, MFIP, ARPS/FRPS, BPSA/SPSA/GPSA, MFIAP etc.) we need practice. With this view, we have already organised two discussion programs on portfolio (by Sri Sushanta Banerjee and Sri S.R.Mondol). Now we are going to start a portfolio contest which will be held quarterly.
Guideline of the above mentioned contest is as follows.
- Subject matter is open.

- The set of images can be submitted either in Monochrome or in Colour and not a mixture of both.
- The submission must accompany a “Statement of Intent” in not more than 30 words explaining your thought process and objective while creating this set of 5 images.
