The State of West Bengal, India, suffered devastating rampage of Cyclone Amphun on 20th May, 2020. Many people lost their home & lively hood, uncountable trees fell down leading to exceptional damage to the mangrove environment which affects the WORLD environment as a whole.
We, volunteers of the PSA from India decided together to make an effective change. With the collaboration from the Photographic Society of America (PSA) when its Executive Board Members answered our clarion call & helped reduce all fees associated with this exhibition has been waived off. All Awards are SPONSORED by the PSA.
We are humbled and overwhelmed by this compassionate gesture of the PSA. Time is of the essence and the PSA EXECUTIVE BOARD members led by our hero Ms. Elena McTighe, Mr. Brian Magor & ors. have decided to immediate Recognition for this exceptional humanitarian exhibition.
We expect photo artists from across the globe to help us in this endeavour and help raise a substantial amount of money through their participation and generous donations (if you choose to). The entire amount collected as entry fee shall be donated to State Relief fund for Amphun as well as Direct Benefit Transfer to fit cases whose name, address & picture would be published online.
On behalf of entire PSA volunteers in India, I, Dr. Avik Sett, EPSA, Chair this exhibition & invite and expect your generous entries to make this noble initiative an exhilarating success.
