Chobi Mela, the first festival of photography in Asia, is one of the most exciting organizations, initiated by Drik. The first Chobi Mela – International Festival of Photography was held on December 2000. It is the most demographically inclusive photo festival in the world and is held every two years in Bangladesh. The festival examines the dramatic shifts of image production, ownership and distribution brought on by new developments in the media landscape.
