Following from Mr. Shashi Nair, Press Institute of India:
Like in the past few years, the Press Institute of India (PII), Chennai, and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), New Delhi, are together organising a competition for the best three articles and the three best pictures on a humanitarian subject.
The article or photograph should have been published in an Indian national
or regional newspaper or magazine between April 2014 and March 2015 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 natural/ man-made disasters. The top three prizes in each category are worth Rs 50,000, Rs 30,000 and Rs 20,000, respectively.
Last year's (2014) prize winners for the best articles were Sohini Chattopadhyay (Open Magazine), Lakshmi Subramanian (The Week), and Pervez Majeed (Sahara Times) and Sumir Karmakar (The Telegraph). In the Best Photograph category, photojournalist Pattabi Raman won the second prize while the third prize went to Manob Chowdhury of The Hindu. The first prize in the Best Photograph category was not awarded last year.
