It was a great day of photography and fun when Photogbaaay launched last weekend at Rhapsody’s Accra Mall. The new platform was officially out-doored at the Accra Mall to an impressive crowd of people who took turns taking pictures to make it onto the very selective photo portal.
The launch event brought to the attention of the general public, the new website and educated the people in attendance about the concept and functionalities of the platform. The very yellow affair, was sponsored by Ghana’s leading cider; Savanna Premium Cider.
The all-day event had professional photographers taking pictures of anyone who cared to pass by the stand. There were a few celebrity appearances as well. Becca was at the event to show support to the concept, Elikem Kumordzie, Ghana’s former Big Brother Africa representative was also in attendance with his co-stars from the up-coming movie, Happy Death Day.
The main feature of the day, which was the photography, brought through a variety of personalities who became subjects of our photographers’ lenses. From individuals who were invited ahead of the show to those who were called in from around the mall, the range of pictures were amazing.
Photogbaaay is an online photo platform and community for photo lovers looking to experience and share photography. The platform is primarily hosted on the website, photogbaaay.com and supported by their social media platforms.
The platform’s fundamental focus is elevating the art in photography. This reason is why the selection process for pictures getting onto the platform is somewhat strict. Photogbaaay has partnered with some of the biggest names in professional photography in Ghana to work on and exhibit content that stand for the true essence of the site.
The event also marked the launch of The Photogbaaay Finest competition; a very rewarding social media based photo-contest where anyone can win big for taking great pictures. The competition will have themes and tasks for anyone participating to follow.
Voting for winners will be done via instagram likes on the photogbaaay instagram page. There are three categories for winning namely: Fine Boy/Fine Girl, The Artist and The Professional.
