On the occasion of World Photography Day, Udaipur Times and HERE Technologies are pleased to announce Udaipur’s first ever GEO TAGGED PHOTO GAMIFICATION competition, which is open to all photo enthusiasts.
Udaipur Times, on the occasion of World Photography Day is organizing a Geo Tagged Photo competition, titled Tag Udaipur. The format of the competition is based on Geo Tagged pictures.
Geo Tagged photo is photograph that is associated to a geographical location by Geo Tagging. Usually this is done by assigning at least a latitude and longitude to the image, and optionally altitude, compass bearing and other fields may also be included.

In theory, every part of a picture can be tied to a geographic location, but in the most typical application, only the position of the photographer is associated with the entire digital image. This has implications for search and retrieval.
HERE Technologies and UdaipurTimes will award contestants under the following submissions:
- 50 Accepted Photos: Rs 500 Gift Voucher
- 100 Accepted Photos: Rs 500 Gift Voucher + Prize
- 500 Accepted Photos: Rs 500 Gift Voucher + 2 Prizes
