Ibibo and FTV jointly look out for a photographer with the magic eye

Portal Ibibo has tied up with FTV channel to launch the Ibibo FTV iFashion Photographer contest. Contestants can upload their portfolios on www.ibibo.com, which would be adjudged by the Ibibo community and an FTV panel, including well-known fashion photographer Jatin Kampani.

This contest is being supported by online and television campaigns. The TVC broke on June 6 on FTV channel in India, while the online campaign too went live the same day on www.ibibo.com.

Elaborating on the contest, Ashish Kashyap, CEO, Ibibo Web Pvt Ltd, said, “Ibibo.com is encouraging the younger generation to showcase their talent in areas that interest them the most. Ibibo is gradually becoming the platform that recognises and rewards great talent. The Ibibo FTV iFashion Photographer contest is a unique proposition, never attempted before. It’s a platform that gives budding fashion photographers from both metro and non-metro India an opportunity reach out to audiences and showcase their work on ibibo. A select few would get to train and shoot with the very best in the industry.”

Tarun Srivastava, Business Head, FTV India, said, “FTV is very happy to be a partner in this initiative, which combines glamour and talent. And with the right lifestyle vehicle like Fashion TV, this concept will surely be well received.”

According to Jatin Kampani, “There is so much talent across the country waiting to be tapped. Ibibo and FTV have recognised the need to do this, and I am really happy and proud to be a part of this photography talent hunt as this will enable me to connect with budding photographers across India, and during the course of this contest I will share my experiences, thoughts and techniques with them on Ibibio.com.”
