“Men seek for vocabularies that are reflections of reality. To this end, they must develop vocabularies that are selections of reality. The eye that captures the essence of life in truth and imagination holds the affections of reality. Be it reflections, selections or affections, it all on a whole, mentions reality.”
On Friday, 9th April 2010, Ideas Society conducted an event keeping in lieu with the thought shared above. “REFLECTIONS” was held in order to celebrate the art of photography with socio-preneurship, as the theme.
Young leaders of the future were invited to present their photo essays, highlighting the social problems of Pakistani society along with the solutions. The basic aim of this event was not only to promote the art of photography but also to give our youth a chance to come forward with concrete and applicable solutions, against the evils lurking in our society. There were cash prizes of worth RS.5000, RS.3000 and RS.2000 for the winners. The exhibition was judged by eminent scholars like Prof.Bushra Ghaffar; (Faculty of Mass Communication) from The University of Punjab, Prof. Khurram Hamid from University of Central Punjab, Prof. Muhammad Ali from University of Central Punjab and Prof. Agha Mahmood from the University of Central Punjab.
The students showed tremendous interest in the event. This was evident from the fact that a total of 27 teams participated with such enthusiasm, which was unprecedented in the history of UCP. The team with the photo essay upon “Littering” was declared as the winner whereas, the teams “Air Pollution” and “Poverty” were pronounced second and third respectively.
Souvenirs were presented to Mr. Furqan Humayun; Head HR Cupola Pakistan, Dr. Shaffique Akhyar; Associate Dean, Faculty of Management Studies UCP, Mr. Muhammad Umais; Assistant Brand Manager, Intel, Mr. M. Azeem of K.E.S and to the honourable jury members.

“Reflections” was concluded successfully with a word of thanks by Patron of Ideas Society, Prof. Rasheed Khalid.
