Udaya won 3rd place in Shootdart Photography Contest-2018 and the prizes were Certificate, Trophy, Cash award of INR.3000/- and a Shootdart T-Shirt. Link: goo.gl/ffDqdf
They have published the result on their website in last week of December 2018 but not in their FB page. They even did not contact or send any mail to Udayan.
Udayan contacted them over phone [8056070146 on 30th Jan 2019] asking his prizes and they said it was already too late for them to send his prizes because it was a 2018 contest!
However, they have replied saying they will look into the matter when Udayan sent them a mail. WE ARE STILL WAITING...
Udayan won a Certificate of Merit for his image titled Adrenalin rush in World Photography Day Contest-2018 organized by Sigma Academy of Photography in association with Department of Language and Culture, Govt of Telangana. Link: goo.gl/m53C48
They DID NOT SEND the certificate even contacting them many times over email and FB msgs. Later, we came to know that other winners also didn’t get their prizes.
Probably, this institute belongs to someone name M C Shekhar who is banned by FIP for past misconducts!
Udayan won a FIAP Blue Ribbon in Bucovina Mileniul III International Salon of Photographic Art-11th Edition-Suceava-Romania-2014 for his image titled Om Mani Padme Hum and it was also published in the salon catalog.
Both the printed catalog and FIPA Blue Ribbon LOST in TRANSIT!!!
