Following from Mr. Sasi.
The Press Institute of India (PII), Chennai, and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), New Delhi, are together organizing a competition for the best three articles on a humanitarian subject.
Like last year, this year too, we have extended the competition to the area of photography, and prizes are being offered for the best three photographs as well.
The article or photograph should have been published in an Indian national or regional newspaper or magazine between April 2013 and March 2014 and can be in any Indian language or in English. The participating candidate will have to produce proof of his or her article having been published.
The theme for this year is REPORTING ON THE FATE OF VICTIMS OF ARMED VIOLENCE.
The top three prizes in each category are worth Rs 50,000, Rs 30,000 and Rs 20,000.
For the record, last year’s (2013) prize winners for the best articles were Anumeha Yadav of The Hindu, Mini Thomas of The Week, and Imran Muzaffar of Greater Kashmir. No prize for best photograph was awarded.
