The creative flair of school students ranging from standards VIII to XII came to the fore at the photography competition conducted by Sasi Creative School of Architecture, as part of the Coimbatore Vizha.
The young talents put their mind to bring out the spirit of Coimbatore through themes such as “Amazing Landmarks” and “Interesting Signboards”.
Competition was stiff with the judges having a tough time deciding the winners. K.Santhosh, a standard IX student from SBOA Matriculation and Higher Secondary School bagged the first prize for his thought-provoking photograph showing a monkey drinking after using a steel cup tied to the tap of a water tank while a man on the other side of the tank was using a plastic bottle to fill water from the tank. The message that animals were more nature-loving than humans deservedly won the top accolades.
The second prize was shared by K.Santhosh Kumar of Nehru Vidyalaya and Sachin of Venkatlakshmi Vidyalaya. While the winners received Rs.3,000/- cash prize, the first-runners up got Rs.1, 500/-each. The winners received their prizes from Mr.Viren Mohan, Managing Director, Xenos Associates and a well-known commercial photographer.
