BANGALORE: The Karnataka Photographers Association is organising a two-day Statelevel convention on March 31 and April 1 at the State Government Employees NGO Hall at Cubbon Park in the city.
The convention is expected to set up a State-level body to look into the various problems photographers are facing throughout the State.
A large number of photographers from district and taluk- level associations are likely to participate in the convention.
Speaking to reporters, B S Shashidhar, President of the Karnataka Photographers Association, said, “Commercial photographers come under the unorganised sector and the government failed to set up a Photo Academy in the 12th Five Yeear Plan as promised.
Therefore, in order to make our voice heard, nearly 150 associations will be coming together.” The two-day event will also see free photography, photoshop and videography workshops and exhibitions from various photographers.
