10:10 International Photofest 2012: REMADE

Having a personal connection to a wonderful campaign, although no more in touch with it that often due to daily life, I do still want to promote it when I can. So here I am talking about it. This year 10:10 Global came with a fantastic idea about recycling old things into reusable things and gave it a name that would go with it “REMADE”. This project will be observed in the month of April. All round the world wherever 10:10 reach goes, people will be working hard “REMADING”. As it goes, every country that is involved with it would have to come up with activities of their own to promote REMADE, and so in Dhaka, Bangladesh, the great team here will be organizing an international photography exhibition. Although the exhibition will be held at a later time, they will be receiving photos in the month. To know more I am posting the details below:
