Announcing SILK INSPIRE 2017
It’s been about five months since SILK INSPIRE 2016, India’s first-ever wedding photography festival, and I must admit that it took us a while to digest what really happened. The first festival, on a tight schedule of planning and execution, turned out to be one heck of an event that blew our minds away. People correctly said, that five months to organize such an event was not enough, but it turned out that it was, and in a big way. It was a success in all parameters, educational, inspirational, and I would dare say spiritual. This makes us very happy to be able to announce SILK INSPIRE 2017!
This One Is Going To Be a Riot!
The first festival in Goa turned out to be an amazing experience, both for the two hundred and twenty participants, as well as the nine panelists who came from all over the world. It was the first time for our small team to put something like this together, and we have learned a lot in the process. With the extra time on our hands, and the experience of 2016, we are already hard at work preparing the 2017 experience, which we promise will be bigger, and crazier than the first one.
We have an incredible line-up of international photographers who will be coming to Goa in October for five days, to give seminars and workshops, and we cant wait to tell you who’s coming. We’ve decided to make it a little more special, and tease you a little longer, by running a contest on our social media channels, and letting you guess who will be coming.
Over the next few weeks, we will be showing you images shot by the photographers who are scheduled to come, and let you guess their identity. The winners will be those who, at the end of the month, have recognised the largest number of photographers. There will naturally be a prize as well.
SILK INSPIRE 2017 will take place in Goa on October 6th to 10th
The first three days of the festival will be dedicated to seminars, keynote sessions, and panel discussions. We will not have a boat party this time, but we will have an afternoon beach party on Sunday, giving us an opportunity to have a couple of drinks, or more, before the workshops start on Monday morning.
We have some great partners and sponsors for this year, and this will hopefully enable us to offer the participants a larger experience than before.
Over the next weeks, and months, we will start adding more content to the new SILK INSPIRE 2017 web page, and let you know more about the plans for the festival. It would be a great way to keep in touch if you subscribe for the festival newsletter below, and we promise not to spam you.
Early bird tickets will start selling in May.
We can’t wait to see you all in Goa in October.
