Photography Contest – Tolerance & Harmony
Tolerance is respect, acceptance and appreciation of the rich diversity of our world’s cultures, our forms of expression and ways of being human. It is fostered by knowledge, openness, communication, and freedom of thought, conscience and belief. Tolerance is harmony in difference. Tolerance, the virtue that makes peace possible, contributes to the replacement of the culture of war by a culture of peace. It means that one is free to adhere to one’s own convictions and accepts that others adhere to theirs. It means accepting the fact that human beings, naturally diverse in their appearance, situation, speech, behaviour and values, have the right to live in peace and to be as they are. It also means that one’s views are not to be imposed on others.
Without tolerance and harmony the lasting peace of societies cannot be maintained, and loyalty for each other cannot be established. MOPHO Club and NSS wing of Jansons Institute of Technology created an online Photography Contest on Tolerance and Harmony for JIT students. In order to create an awareness about the theme, students were asked to send photographs related to the theme given with an appropriate tag line. Totally 17 students participated and three prizes were offered. E- Certificates were provided to all the participants and winners.
