The training was imparted to journalists of Bhaktapur to equip them with knowledge and skills for professional photography.

In the concluding session, Madhyapur Thimi municipality Mayor Madan Sundar Shrestha gave away certificates to training participants.

On the occasion, NFPJ central chairperson Dhruba Ale stressed that the trained photo journalists should impart message of success in photography and establish their identity accordingly.

Likewise, FNJ Bhaktapur chapter Chairperson Pushkar Raj Budhathoki asked the training journalists to materialize the training learning to their professional actions.
