Sounds like an excellent initiative from your end Anil...you sure have a large heart!!

Maybe you should put some timelines in place...draw up a final plan of what you would like to do and exchange some PMs with Lightwave, Henry and Brendon.

The only challenge i can think off at this stage is the Annual meetup that you've mentioned. There are a lot of people here who have a lot of personal and work related commitments and plus there is the issue of travel costs etc. For people like me who are working and not self employed this may be a challenge..for someone who's a businessman it may just need some minor tweaking of schedule.

Having said that - do give us a shout if you are ever in Mumbai!!!

While the initiative is brilliant, the parameters mentioned are too subjective. I would prefer a specific photographic contest any day.

i am proposing another Option to PCI members, You can also Consider (01) First Prize on every Monthly PCI Contest , where i can Offer a Cash Prize of INR.1000/- [ One Thousand Only]. That means 12 months Promotions = INR 12,000/- Yearly Budget an increase of INR. 2,000/- from my earlier Proposal.

You can make this a Monthly (12K) or Yearly Event (10K), Choice is entirely left to Members.

Awaiting your suggestions,

Thanking you all once again

Anil George

(N.B) : I am Learning each day at the Forums, it is a small initiative by giving some thing back to the Society. Money can never be a compensation for the knowledge what we all gain but just Be A By Product. Even if the Prize amount is small, only hope it will give some achieving satisfaction to our Members who will continuously help others grow here.

@Anil, I reiterate that all I have had for your offer is respect and appreciation since the beginning. My only doubt was about the parameters. Now what is best for the community will be decided, I am surely in most able way, by the mods and members. In the meantime I again thank you for your generosity.
Regards
Somnath

Anil, this shows how big a heart you have. Absolutely commendable. Mods will come out with a plan to implement your proposal with reasonable parameters. But the gesture from you is awesome. One clap for you.  :)

It's a wonderful large hearted decision Anil. I'll talk to the moderators as well and get in touch so that the funds you have offered to spend can benefit the members maximally. I personally do not want any funds to run the site and forum but if the members share among themselves, not only cash but photography gear which they are no longer using, it will be a great boost to the member loyalty and contributions. We may be young, less than 5 months old, but it's shaping up to be an awesome community. Thanks Anil.
