YPS National Salon 2024

Message from Chairman

YPS has held 37 All India and 13 International salons, this being the 38th edition of All India Salon. We are extremely thankful to all the all the 299 participants who submitted 3377 wonderful pictures including 155 pictures from 16 Youth Participants for the Salon. I congratulate each of you for the magnificent and stunning pictures! The entire team is proud of the same.

Exclusive category for youth under the age of 18 years with free participation introduced a few years back to encourage the younger generation’s participation, was retained in this salon. I am happy to inform you that after the judging session it felt good to hear from the jury that the pictures under the youth category were of a high standard and complimented YPS for having an exclusive category for youth. This means that this endeavour of YPS is bearing fruits, and helping the youth to showcase their talents.

The Salon website used had been designed and developed to ensure a delightful experience to participants while registering, uploading the images and in making payment. The in-house developed salon judging software was fine-tuned to facilitate online remote judging sessions. I am extremely thankful to Shri Murali Santhanam, the architect of our website and judging software, for his dedicated efforts.

In the wake of COVID 19 pandemic, we could not meet for the open judging sessions as was being done every year. Our team rose to the occasion and came up with a brilliant solution; it was exciting to have the remote salon judging process live on Facebook, with the scoring of images by jury available in real-time for the participants and photography lovers across the globe. This was the first of its kind in the country, if not the world. An added feature was to have some of the jury members in our live session addressing the viewers. My sincere thanks to Shri Manju Vikas Sastry V and Shri Hardik P Shah for conceptualizing and executing it to perfection, which invited appreciation from all quarters. I may not be wrong in saying that we have created a history of sorts. The distinguished jury, all of whom are eminent photographers themselves, conducted the evaluation of the images with great conscience and unbiased expertise to which I am deeply indebted.

I am extremely honoured to be the salon chairman and thank the YPS Executive Committee and the All India salon committee for entrusting me with the conduct of the salon. I was privileged to have a dedicated team who gave their 100 per cent in making this salon a great success. My sincere thanks go to Smt Prema Kakade, salon secretary for actively involving in every aspect with dedication, full zeal and enthusiasm. Shri M S Kakade was a perfect fit for the role of treasurer, keeping things in control, especially with regard to finance and accounts. Design Team of Shri Hardik Shah, Shri Nandan Hegde and Shri Girish Mayachari with the support of Shri Chetan Rao Mane, catered to all design requirements for publicity, salon certificates etc. my heartfelt thanks to them. Shri K S Rajaram with his deep-rooted contacts in the media fraternity contributed his might to get good coverage in the print media, I take this opportunity on behalf of my entire team to extend sincere thanks to him. The well-designed salon catalog, now in your hands, is the result of dedicated efforts by Shri Rajasimha S, who has been the designer for the past few salons. His designing has drawn appreciation from all quarters. I, on behalf of the salon committee, extend sincere gratitude to him.

As the Chairman of the YPS All India Digital Salon 2020, I feel honoured and thank the photography fraternity for contributing to the salon and making it a huge success! For us who have been planning and working in the committee; there has been a lot of work, a tremendous amount of enjoyment and an amazing feeling of work well accomplished. I would like to convey my heartfelt thanks to the Award Sponsors and Media Partners, who immensely supported to the success of the Salon. Last but not the least, I appreciate and thank all the senior YPS members & past Executive Committee members for their continuous support. My very special thanks go to Shri H Satish, YPS President, for believing in the younger generation and entrusting us with this incredible experience and for constantly being the guiding factor.

Stay Home Stay Safe......
