Wishing you all Merry Christmas !

Friends, we are fast approaching new year 2017. We must Introspect our achievements during this year, which is most appropriate. Ever since the new committee took over in April, we have come a long way and have done lot of notable programmes, conducted workshops and importantly held a National Salon. It is a great task and I thank all the committee members for giving their best support.  We must work hard, with selfless motives and whole heartedly put efforts to see our YPS flag fly high in the international arena. Let us work towards it.

Some young and enthusiastic members have come forward to help us from outside the committee and it is a good sign, that many want to make YPS great.

Dear Members, It is a moment of great satisfaction and happiness for all us, that we are back to our old premises at 3rd floor, TT hall, State Youth Centre, Nrupathanga Road, Bangalore. Recently, as requested by the Director of State Youth Services, we vacated the Kanteerava stadium hall and shifted to the larger hall in State Youth Centre. Henceforth, all our programmes will be held in this 300 seating capacity hall. No more standing outside. The YPS Programs can now reach a larger audience. I thank all the Executive Committee members who have helped in shifting and re-arranging at SYC. Continue reading YPS Newsletter November 2016

IMGP8627 Satish and BaronetSeptember was full of actions and programs. A hectic month for the ever energetic team to organize things. In fact, we have become more prone to urgent meetings and working on tight schedules. A 9-member team went to Jaisalmer for desert photography workshop and came out with loads of colorful fantastic images. Five of them traveled further to the popular National parks and have captured some interesting images of the wildlife of Rajasthan. A session on this experience will be arranged in the near future. While half of the committee members were busy shooting in Rajasthan, our mercury-like member Mr. Vikas was busy arranging a Photography Contest on ‘Karnataka’ with the Department of Karnataka Tourism. We are privileged to have been associated with the Department of Karnataka Tourism and remarkably the contest and exhibition was completed within an extremely short span of one week!! Pooh! Hats off to Mr. Murali Santhanam, who created a separate website overnight for the contest and published the details instantly in both YPS and Karnataka Tourism websites. YPS also got very good publicity in the media. Thanks to Murali and Vikas for their excellent work in this regard. The Minister for Tourism, Sri. Priyank Kharge and the Director of Tourism Dr. N. Manjula, both appreciated the pictures and the work done by YPS. Sri. T. Kempanna, Sri. Giri Cavale and Dr. Manoj C. Sindhagi were the judges. Thanks to all for the cooperation and support.

Friends, keep yourself free for all the programs scheduled for the month of October 2016, as we have lots of them, to keep you busy and improve learning. If you really want to gain knowledge and inspiration in the ‘Art of Photography’, don’t miss any of these! Since we celebrate NAVARATHRI festival – feast for your stomach with “Habbada oota” and feast your EYES at YPS, through presentations.
