This was one of the most wonderful photos of our first festival taken by Yannick Cormier…and what makes it so great?  The impact of incredible photography under the lights and against a night sky.

Yannick Cormier, Work by Kishor K. Sharma

But lights and the power to run them are the biggest single cost in PondyPHOTO’s Budget after printing.  AND WE DONT HAVE THE MONEY to turn them on.

Help us show off this edition’s photography to it its best advantage and support our LETS LIGHT THE FESTIVAL campaign on  Great or small your contribution will make a difference and we’ll send you some great gifts to say THANK YOU!
