Anuradha Marwah from Dibrugarh has won a prestigious international photo competition organized by UNESCO. She won from among 2,500 contestants from all over South and South East Asia, and also won US 500 dollars. The second and third prize winners are also from India. They are Pranab Basal and Anindya Majumdar.
Anuradha Marwah, works for the tourism sector in New Delhi, had a herd of elephants on a jungle track as her submission for the competition. Her prize winning photograph included a baby elephant, nudging her elders, making it almost a surreal visual essay.
The UNESCO Photo Competition 2016 was organized as a part of the social media campaign on ‘Science for Sustainability’. The campaign began on World Environment Day (June 5) and concluded on World Science Day (November 10). The international jury was led by noted photo journalist Raghu Rai.
