Duggal’s Capture the Moment Photo Contest NOW OPEN


Duggal’s Capture the Moment Photo Contest NOW OPEN

A great photograph unlocks a world of possibilities. At the same moment you create that single frozen frame, you create an infinite number of visual stories. Each beholder is taken to the exact square foot at the exact millisecond of your composition, yet each beholder’s mind wanders to its own unique place and time.

In Duggal’s Capture the Moment Contest, you are given the power to create a definitive story to accompany your image. Together, your image and story will mark an unrivaled historical record of a moment of inspiration. Beholders’ minds won’t wander anymore; they’ll know the true story behind your art. That story may be abstract, concrete, internal or external – it’s in your hands, and this is your chance to capture the moment.
