DJ Memorial International Photography Competition

DJ Memorial International Photography Competition A curated extravaganza, of Exquisite Imagery and Creative Indulgence, a Juxtaposition of Insightful and Expressive photography.   The DJ Memorial International Photography Competition is open now. The competition starts on May 25th 2020 and ends with flair on July 5th 2020, running an impressive 41 days. This year is the 9th edition and the backdrop of pandemic makes it important for the organizers. The sun rises in the east and sets on the west, but this time it's different.
