As we know, the Delhi Photography Festival is upon us and we cannot be more excited. It will showcase the best of contemporary art in a public space to create awareness, appreciation and most of all, delight. And this is why #DPF2015 is looking towards its community of enthusiasts and experts to help fund the extraordinary festival this year.

What’s in it for you?

There are five levels of donation, and doing your bit means a free pass to their many goodies and exclusive events, curated just for you. Be a DPF Friend by contributing INR 500 or more and get yourself a badge. You can also donate more than INR 1,000 and find yourself with a handy DPF catalogue and exclusive gallery walk on 30th October. A DPF Enthusiast {donation of INR 7,500} will be rewarded with a copy of Nazar Photography Monographs 03 by Kanu Gandhi, which will be launched at #DPF2015. A DPF Patron will be invited to be a part of the opening reception and a DPF Benefactor will be presented with one open edition art print along with all the other goodies {for INR 25,000 and INR 75,000 respectively}.

Donate some love

The costs of the entire festival can go over 60 lakhs, but DPF is targeting INR 10 lakhs, just to get the project jumpstarted. The donations will be used for the production of exhibitions and other events and seminars. These will include infrastructural needs like printing, mounting, framing, display systems, installation, lighting systems, site management, and catalogue publication amongst other expenses. As Prashant Panjiar {Co-founder, DPF} says, it is a labour of love and they want it to become one for you too. So go ahead and pitch in at the BitGiving link here.
