95th National Photojournalism Day Celebrated

The morning procession around the theme ‘Journalism for News, Photojournalism for Factual Truth’ started at Bhrikutimandap and moved on to Sahid Gate, New Road, and the exhibition premise at Kathmandu Durbar Square. The National Photojournalism Day commemorates the publication on 26 April 1927 by the Gorkhapatra National Daily a photo of a girl operating a spinning wheel. The black/white photo was published on the third page and was arguably the first news-related photo in Nepal.
