Anoorupa Bose ( Associate Creative Director,L&K Saatchi & Saatchi ) Idea Cellular was painting Kolkata yellow with more network in every corner of the city. To celebrate this,we launched "Think Yellow Think Idea"- a campaign that challenged the audience on Facebook to capture photos of Kolkata with lots of yellow in it. For this digital engagement, we partnered with Mr. Subir Basak. In our launch creatives, we featured stunning photos of Kolkata taken by Mr. Basak himself. His photographs perfectly captured the essence of Kolkata and the dominant hues of yellow, in turn inspiring photographers from across Kolkata to Think Yellow Think Idea and share their photos. In just 2 weeks we received an overwhelming response of over 1500 photos. The photos were unlike anything we had seen before in a Social Media campaign- stunning enough to run in exhibitions across the world.This would not have been possible without Mr. Basak's photos that got the wheels turning for our campaign. After 2 weeks, Mr. Basak, our eminent judge, selected the 15 winning photographs. He was extremely supportive at every stage of the campaign. Right from receiving and judging hundreds of photo entries at midnight, to fighting the scorching summer heat of Kolkata to capture stunning shots of Kolkata all day long, day after day, to launch our campaign. At the end of it all, it was a very successful campaign with 40.6 lakh impressions and 1.4 lakh likes on Facebook. And all we have to say is a BIG THANK YOU!

Suchit Nanda (Photographer, photonicyatra.com, Mumbai,India) Subir is a very talented photographer and I have been following his works for couple of years. He has an eye to see the extraordinary from the ordinary and to capture that moment in time and present it to the viewer in such a way that it leaves a marked impression. From the fleeting moments to the stillness of time he has captured each image so beautifully. His photographs of festivals, people on the street and most of all emotions in his own unique style is a delight. His images are a visual treat.
