We invite photography enthusiasts and professionals from all across India to submit images that document ‘Life under Lockdown’. Participants can submit up to a maximum of 10 images; both COLOR and B/W images accepted. The current pandemic has majorly disrupted human life across the world and the ensuing global lockdown is something we were unprepared for. The impending consequences of the same can only be fathomed in it’s entirety as the future unfolds before our eyes and once life continues beyond the lockdowns into a new normal.
It is in such a backdrop that we at DEU – a photo agency – have decided to do our bit for the community through a crowd-sourced Photo Exhibition, proceeds from which shall also go to Covid-19 relief funds run by NGOs or Government Organisations.

We are also in the process of deciding on a few more credible names to honour this initiative. Final Jury Panel & Panel of Curators will be announced in our website within the next few days.
By submitting the images, applicants hereby do understand that only shortlisted images by the distinguished panel of jury and curators would be eligible to be displayed in the ‘Shortlisted’ or ‘Top’ Categories in the Website and then subsequently make it to the Exhibitions and the Coffee Table Book!
The intention is to feature only the top images which emotionally connect with the theme. We hence expect that all applicants will honor the final shortlist made by DEU in consensus with the jury and curators and understand the possibility of their submissions not making into the final shortlist.
