About the contest

It's that time of the year when Bengal vibrates to the beat of dhaks, the chanting mantras and the sweet aroma of burning incense. Nature too joins in the celebration with sunny weather and white cotton clouds floating in the clear blue sky. The sound, smells and the vibe in the air suddenly come together to tell you that the biggest festival of Bengal, Durga Pujo, has arrived.

Amidst all the fun and festivities of Durga Puja, it's also time for one of Bengal's biggest extravaganzas - Berger Priyo Pujo 2019. This year marks the seventh year of the Berger Priyo Pujo celebrations. This year too, Berger Priyo Pujo is featuring some of the best 'priyo pujos' of Kolkata in two categories: Berger Priyo Pujo, which essentially highlights the 'para pujos' and Berger Priyo Abashan Pujo which features some of the unique pujos celebrated in the gated communities of Kolkata. This time, Berger Priyo Pujo (Para Pujo) will be celebrated not just in Kolkata but also in Durgapur and Siliguri.

This year the voting process will be through two secured platforms - (i) IVR based calling and (ii) website based.

Berger Priyo Pujo is a unique contest where every citizen gets a chance to vote for the pujo that is 'priyo' to him/her. There can be many reasons to select and vote for a particular pujo as your favourite — it could mean bringing back childhood memories of pandal-hopping with friends, enjoying eating bhog or even organising your own para pujo for a long time. We also select Citizen Judges who visit the shortlisted pujos after Round 2 voting to judge the current year pujo pandal on various parameters. Ultimately, the coveted awards are declared based on citizen votes and the judgement by Citizen Judges.

Call us at 81009 81009 or log on to www.bergerpriyopujo.com to vote.
So, go on and vote for your Priyo Pujo.
