About the Salon Group

The YPS Salon group was created in October 2017 to promote group participation in Salons. The group has, over the last 2 years, grown in strength and comprises of over 100 participants, both professional, amateur and very new to photography. The common trait among members is to nurture a burning desire to win Salons and International Honors. The group was started by the President Shri H Satish with Shri Digwas Bellemane and Shri Krishna Bhat as mentors. Since Jan 2018 to date, in a span of less than 2 years, the group has won a whopping 60+ Best Club Awards from both National and International Salons! This is a record created in our country and the Diamond Jubilee of Best Club Awards (50+ Awards) deserves a grand celebration! Lets celebrate this unique record of being the BEST of the BEST with an exhibition of our best works, in one of the most prestigious galleries, the Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath.
