Many organisations have started drawing up plans for Madras Week (August 21st-28th) which seems to begin from the first week of August and goes on through the first week of September.

The entries should depict what the city of Chennai means to participants. Photographs may include typical views of life in the city, cityscapes, culture, tradition, day-to-day life, festivals, nature, wildlife and capturing the magnificence of the city’s architecture from the oldest arch to the most modern structures.
