YPS National Salon 2024

Message from Chairman

Etched in Gold: First and foremost I express my gratitude to the executive committee for entrusting me with the role of a chairperson in this very prestigious and historic salon of our Golden Jubilee year. I am humbled and honored to be the first woman salon chairperson in the history of YPS. This being YPS Golden Jubilee Year, the All India Digital Salon 2021 is etched in gold in the annals of YPS history for many reasons!

The executive committee was determined to make the salon very special. The first step was to make Participation Free for all and for the first time, we have our own customised and classy YPS Medals. Along with the regular awards, special prestigious awards in the name of eight Photography Legends of Karnataka were instituted.

With the unexpected demise of Sri Neginhal, Hon YPS, an award in the Nature Section was also instituted in his memory. Young Talent Awards encourage the young photographers too. We continued with the tradition of offering cash awards to encourage photographers.

YPS salons are very popular with photographers and this being free participation combined with wide publicity resulted in a flood of entries. My heartfelt gratitude to all the 1,039 authors who submitted a whopping 13,321 works in 4 sections and created a National Record. The salon has truly helped popularise the Art of Photography. A large number of first time participants showed their eagerness to learn the Art of Photography! I certainly hope they will take their passion forward for this great art form.

My sincere gratitude to the eminent jury members who used their rich photographic knowledge to choose the best photos for awards. Judging the huge number of entries in each section was a daunting task as the session had also to be webcast live. Hope you enjoyed the pictures and the four days of live scoring. For the first time we had the presence of "Salon Saathi" of FIP during the award selection process and I am sure they were impressed by the transparent and efficient manner in which YPS salons are conducted.

Unique and attractive downloadables were designed not only for the award winners but for each and every participant, thereby emphasizing the importance of participation. We at YPS are committed to paying minute attention to every detail, to give the best to every photographer who associates with us!

Dear friends, do thumb through the catalog and enjoy the excellent works. Keep your passion going strong, keep learning and enjoy every step of the way!
