By Correspondent

ITANAGAR, Aug 19 - On the occasion of World Photography Day, Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Monday urged photographers and videographers to document the rich cultural heritage and natural beauty of the state and showcase it to the world.

�You can become leading promoters of tourism while archiving the rich culture and scenic beauty of the state,� Khandu said after inaugurating an exhibition by the Arunachal Photography Club at the Civil Secretariat.

He said the tourism sector can change the economy of Arunachal Pradesh and there was no better way to lure tourists than professional portrayal of the unique culture and places through pictures and videos.

Reminding everyone about Prime Minister Narendra Modi�s call to visit at least 15 tourist destinations in the country by 2022 when India celebrates 75 years of its independence, Khandu said it would boost tourism like never before in the North East.

He congratulated the Arunachal Photography Club for spreading awareness through creative work, and assured it of the government�s support in promoting Arunachal as a sought-after destination.

Inaugurating a website of the APC, he said it would provide a superb platform for both amateur and professional photographers to not only showcase their work to the world but also selling their artwork to buyers worldwide.

The APC was established in 2014 by a few enthusiasts and amateur photographers from different backgrounds like doctors, engineers, bankers, entrepreneurs, etc., and now has 34 registered members.

The Chief Minister also gave away prizes to the winners of a photography contest. John Taru Habung bagged the first prize while Moge Riba and Jaju Pulu were the first and second runners-up, respectively. Tadar Jamja received the jury choice award.
