Celebrating Life photo-book launched

Theme for 2018 to be announced today

A photo-book containing the winning entries of Standard Chartered-The Daily Star Celebrating Life has been launched. 

The unveiling ceremony of the book, featuring the winning photographs from the contest of 2016 and 2017, was held at the Daily Star Centre yesterday.

The theme of 2017 was "Celebrating Diversity of Bangladesh", and that of 2016 was "Youth in Change".
