Moniruzzaman  Sazal

1st position

What are your feelings after getting this award?

I have been doing photography simply out of passion and so to win an award for something that I love makes me feel elated. I never really expected to actually be rewarded for my efforts.

Will this award inspire you to work harder?

Absolutely. Photography is a matter of practice and the more you practice, the better you get at it. But in order to practice daylong, night after night, requires immense motivation. Awards such as these provide me with the motivation I need to produce quality work. 

How would your biggest influence react, if they get to know that you have won such a prestigious award?

I could not do photography in my childhood, even though I really wanted to. Later in my life I started doing it and ever since, my biggest influence has been my wife. This is because I work six days a week, and on the one day that I have a day off, I practice photography. My wife has been unbelievably supportive on this matter, and so she pushes me to move forward and do my best.


Abdur Rahman

2nd position

What are your feelings after getting this award?

This is a great achievement for me. I would wholeheartedly like to thank Celebrating Life for giving me such a platform in which I could express my talent. Photography is my passion and it really gives me a lot of courage to see that my craft is looked after and appreciated.

Will this award inspire you to work harder?

It will for sure. I don't do photography for awards and recognitions, but it is very humbling to get an award of such magnitude. I would like to dedicate this to all my friends and family who supported me throughout thick and thin. I did not have the luxury to take photography as a profession per se, but this really does pour fuel on my passion and by the Almighty's grace I will work harder to produce finer

What would your greatest influence think of you, knowing that you received such a prestigious award?

To be honest, I do not have anyone particular as my 'greatest influence'. You could say that what drives me is the unending support of my friends and family. If they know that I have received such a big award, they will without a doubt be tremendously proud of me, and that will be all that matters for me. 


Mohammad Kaisar

3rd position

What are your feelings after getting this award?

The feeling is something else entirely, I can't quite articulate it. All I can say is that I am happy and honored to have been even considered for such an award. This is the first ever competition that I have entered in, so I never quite saw it coming. This is my very first milestone as a photographer. 

Will this award inspire you to work harder?

That it definitely will. You see, initiatives such as this really boost the morale of an artist, in whichever field he or she may be in. I will definitely increase my rate of work now that I have a great incentive to look forward to every year, for that I would like to wholeheartedly thank Celebrating Life. 

How would your biggest influence react, if they get to know that you have won such a prestigious award?

My biggest influence is Nasir Al Mamun, a true genius. By the Almighty's grace I had the opportunity to talk to him once, so I can tell that he will indeed be very proud of me. He is a very bright and open-minded person.
