photography contest is being organized by the M.N. Sharma Architectural Society,
Chandigarh in collaboration with Chandigarh Lalit Kala Akademi for the youth of Tricity, age
limit between 18-30 years.


Ramps and Staircases are essential to an architectural experience. These elements
foster connectivity in various dimensions which enrich the essence of the space,
playing a key role in its functionality. In Corbusier's masterpiece, Chandigarh has
several instances of sculptural and intriguing ramps and staircases which transcend
the function of mere vertical circulation, exuding multidimensionality. Le Corbusier
called them, ‘Linking Levels- Ramps and Staircases’. Capture some of these ramps
and staircases, whether in a building or an open area, through your lens to win the MN
Sharma Photography Award 2021.

be showcased in an exhibition launching on 30th October on the occasion of M.N. Sharma
Memorial Day. Copyright of selected entries will remain with M.N Sharma Architectural Society
& Chandigarh Lalit Kala Akademi. The decision of the jury will be final. The earlier winners will
not be entitled to the award. The artist must send their original works with an undertaking in the
