International Mobile Photography Competition
Being interested in photography and a being a foodie myself, made me organize a food photography competition to celebrate the National Photography Day on the 19th of August 2020. As the first International Service initiative, we organized Calorie Graphy as our first ever photography event of the Rotaract Club of Excellence.
A challenging task since day one where I had a responsibility to extend our fellowship and encourage members from overseas to participate. This is not only to extend fellowship but also to add more meaning to the competition by extending food entries from overseas to learn more about different food cultures and cuisines. This competition ran for 24 days and in that period, I was able to reach as many clubs as to be a part of this project. Our major quickening of entries was received after the video we posted regarding the competition.
That boosted all the Rotaractors and Non- Rotarctors to be a part of the food ride. At the end of 15 days, we received 335 entries from 10+ countries and 14 RIDs. The top 10 images were chosen by our event partner Viralmedia.lk and the winner was crowned with the majority of likes received. Shenade Michael was crowned as the winner with over 600 likes out of 2629 total likes at the end of 24 hours. She was gifted with a 3000 LKR food voucher. Overall this project was a tremendous success not only did it help celebrate a meaningful day but also helped our Club with fellowship with Rotaractors overseas
