Click a Smile is an annual photography competition conducted by The Akshaya Patra Foundation, which provides wholesome mid-day meals to over 1.7 million children across 11 states in India. Following its success last year, this year, Click A Smile 2016 is set to go even further. The competition, which is open to both amateur and professional photographers worldwide, focusses on celebrating the innocence and joy of a child’s smile. The criteria of the competition therefore, is that the entries must be a picture of a smiling child (or children) from anywhere in the world, in any setting, ranging from home, school, playground or even the neighbourhood.

Entries will be accepted from November 20, 2016 to December 30, 2016, during which contestants can upload their best three photographs with captions for judging. The shortlisted entries will be judged by a panel of professionals from the industry, who will select the top three winners. These winners will receive trophies, certificates and gift vouchers.

In 2015, Click A Smile saw an overwhelming response, with 1700 entries being registered from 80 countries. This year, spirits are soaring and preparations are underway for a cracker of a competition!
