Online submission through for Better Photographys annual photography contest Photographer of the Year and Young Photographer of the Year have broken all past records for submissions. For the current years contest more than 30K+ entries were submitted online through the specially designed microsite in addition to about 10K+ submitted through offline channels. This is more than a 3-fold increase over last years submissions where the total number of entries received all through offline channels - was about 12K+. The technology team at Canvera built a fabulous and easy to use site for the contestants to submit their entries which no doubt contributed to the incredible increase in participation said K Madhavan Pillai, editor of Better Photography. He added, Not only was the site great for contestants but Canvera also built an easy way for the judges to go through the entries. The smooth running of the online portion of the competition emphatically validated our choice to go with Canvera as the online partner for the competition.

We are absolutely delighted at the success of the contest and eagerly await the results to pick out the best photographers in India, said Dhiraj Kacker, CEO of Canvera. Our collaboration with Better Photography continues to grow and we are extremely delighted to have made a meaningful contribution to this years contest. The winners of the competition will be felicitated at a grand event in Mumbai on January 7th 2010 that is being held alongside Indias largest photography exhibition Photofair 2010. The winners will also be announced in the February 2010 issue of Better Photography.
