Our popular Photo of the Month contest is now open for March. After the submission deadline passes we’ll be putting up a shortlist of our favourite India photos – with links to their owners – and asking you to pick a winner.
And while the contest is mainly for fun and inspiration, there is a prize for the chosen winner!
This month our theme is Seasons of India
March is all about the colours of spring, especially with India’s famous Holi festival. Barsana is our destination of the month for it’s special Holi celebrations.

- Hill stations in the summer
