A tricolour feather and an image of an ice-covered valley from Leh have won Indian Link’s Independence Day photo contest.
To mark Independence Day this year, Indian Link organised a photo contest titled #myIndianlink. Amateur photographers were invited to submit an image that best expresses their LINK to India or their FEEL of India.
The winning entries by Sai Krishna and Sachin Wakhare respectively are featured in Indian Link’s August 2020 edition, an Independence Day Special. Sai Krishna’s image of the tricolour feather became the cover shot and Sachin Wakhare’s photo took the prestigious centrespread.
Both win Amazon gift vouchers worth $100 each.
Sai Krishna said, “I love seeing the tricolour around me in daily life.”
Sachin Wakhare gives equal credit to his mate Mitesh Patel for his winning pic. “Mitesh and I brainstormed to create this photo when we travelled to Leh with school friends two years ago. Sadly, this region saw some conflict with China recently. As our photo depicts, the Tricolour will always fly high on our land. Vande Mataram.”
Entries were uploaded on to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with the hashtag #myIndianlink or emailed to IndianLink directly.
15 images were shortlisted from the 54 entries received, from which the final two were chosen.
