Manfest-Varchasva hosts a plethora of business, cultural and sports events

First Impressions

Rightly credited as the cradle of Indian culture, Uttar Pradesh is the land whose history holds much influence and significance over our nation. This heartland of India which extends from the foothills of Himalayas and encompasses the Gangetic plain, is a land of diversity across facets including people, monuments, cuisine, religion art and crafts. In this land which shaped the extraordinary legends of Ramayana and Mahabharata, some of the greatest poets wrote some of their finest works, which has stood the test of time. In this land where the great Sultans, Mughals and Nawabs left their indelible mark of creative genius as monuments, a land where the mouth-watering Awadhi, Mughlai and Kumauni cuisine rule the palette, the plethora of experiences is mesmerizing.

UP tourism presents First Impressions, a rare opportunity to capture on film these footprints of time that still find relevance in the decorous land of Uttar Pradesh! From crafting a photo story, on any theme that catches your fancy, to portraying the beauty of Lucknow’s tourist attractions, the competition will encompass multiple rounds, challenging you to bring out the best. The winning entries get to take home prizes worth INR 30,000. So, dust-off those DSLRs, set-up those tripod stands and set out to capture a slice of this true marvel.
