Nepalese Association of Victoria (NAV) is organising its signature event “TEEJ: Celebrating Womanhood” on 21st August 2016 at the Thornbury Theatre. Approximately 650 ladies dressed up in red, colourful saris and glittering jewellery attended the event at Coburg Town Hall last year. Like previous years, NAV is anticipating the same level of participation this year too. Nepal’s popular folk singer KOMAL OLI is set to headline along with a few local performers on the day of the event.This year NAV Teej Mela is being supported by Nari Nikunj Australia, while the event partner is Neplay Events.

NAV encourages applications from photographer(s) who have proven records and relevant experience in photography. This is a hugely popular community event, and a great way of serving your community. We seek at least 3 photographers or a photography group with their own camera/equipments for 5 to 6 hours on the event day. Please quote your hourly rate or overall charge. An equivalent fuel card will be provided in case you do not have an ABN. Volunteer photographs are most welcome. Free food and drinks in moderation will be provided for free for the volunteer photographers. A certificate of appreciation will be given to acknowledge your service to the community.

Please be advised that Photographs and Videos will be a property of NAV and under no circumstance the photographers are to publish and distribute without NAV’s prior permission. Logo and signage of volunteer photographers will be permitted. No other photographer or any agency/individual will be allowed to engage in professional photography in this program.

Please note that incomplete applications or submissions beyond deadline may not be considered. Also note that the submission of an expression of interest does NOT guarantee the photography opportunity at the event. As a community organization, we would like to provide equal opportunity, however, please be advised that NAV reserves the right to approve the selection of the photographer(s) and the decision of NAV (Event-committee) is deemed to be final.
