Tender Captures

16 October 2012 Tender Captures

A photography exhibition for the promotion of visually disabled people was held in the city on Sunday.

The much-awaited photography exhibition by school students organised by Sightsavers, a global development organisation working to eliminate avoidable blindness on Sunday was received very well by the five hundred people present at the occasion which included principals, teachers and other dignitaries of the city. The focus of the event was to create awareness among children on the importance of vision and issues of eye health.

Forty photographs were short listed from a whopping number of one hundred and thirty entries for the exhibition that was inaugurated by Rohit Trivedhi, a city-based professor. The highlight of the evening was a special jury award that was based on the explanation that students provided about the pictures captured to the panel of judges. This helped the students in understanding the difficulties that blind people face and the role that such people play. The program concluded with a vote of thanks given by Sightsavers Programme Manager.

While Chaitali Sheokar of Carmel Convent School won the first prize of Rs 10000, the second and third prize worth Rs 7000 and Rs 5000 respectively was bagged by Bani Kaur Gulati from Carmel Convent School and Ankita Karbanda from Delhi Public School. The Special Jury Award was given away to Ganisha Bhawasar of Carmel Convent, Devashish Mathur of Delhi Public School and Meha Shah of Sanskar Valley. The Critic Award was given to Sarthak Jha of Campion School, Swasti Johri of St. Joseph Convent and Amey Singh of St. Mont Fort School. Neha Agrawal of Carmel Convent, Arpit Argal of Delhi Public School, Avichal Mishra of Delhi Public School, Tejaswani Yadav of Hema School and Nayan Mathur of Jawaharlal Nehru School were given the consolation prize.
