We just finished a 5 day long contest on the theme “stripes” in collaboration with Chumbak, India’s leading fashion and home decor brand. Members were asked to post their shots based on that theme on Facebook and Instagram.

It’s always fun to see members come up with outstanding photographs on weekly themes. Stripes seems to interest street photographers quiet a bit as we saw a rise in the number of entries. A total of 1576 images were posted for the weekly challenge and it only made the task of the curators harder. (we do enjoy it though)

Here is set of images that made the cut.
