Best Published Photo of TCS World 10k

Awards, come and go… But they are always welcome.

TCS World 10k Winning photograph

Tearsheet of DNA newspaper, Bangalore edition dated June 6th, 2011. The lead photograph is of Ethiopian long-distance runner Dire Tune pointing a finger at her compatriot Merima Mohammed for obstructing her just before they crossed the finishing line at World 10K Bangalore. The photograph won me the award for the best published photograph of World 10k Bangalore.

I have been a professional photographer for last 5 to 6 years. And in this short span of time recognition to my work have come in the form of scholarships and fellowships. And I have even won an award for making a short-film! But I had never won an award for photography in particular.

It doesn’t make much difference to my photographic work or even to my belief in visual story-telling.  But recognition to the work is always welcome, and especially if it has some prize money attached to it:).

On a fine evening of July this year, I won a prize in the field of sports photography. I was given the award for Best Published Photograph of TCS World 10k Bangalore, an annual marathon event taking place in Bangalore city. The award carried with it a sum of Rupees 25,000. A good start to the second half of the year 2011.

Awards, come and go… But they are always welcome.
