October 14, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) Like prior years, IIDR
organized the 2011 “IIDR Sarad Samman” awards in association with
South-Kolkata District Nehru Yuba Kendra Sangathan, Ministry of Youth
Affairs And Sports, and Government of India.
Washington Bangla Radio is the global radio partner for the IIDR Sarad Samman Awards.
The unique contest was held among several Pujo Committees (South
Kolkata) during Durga Pujo. A group of eminent judges selected winning
Puja Committees on several criteria like creativity, maintaining noise
pollution norms, using
traditional/folk art forms etc.
Over Sixty pujo committees participated in this
competition, not just from Kolkata but also from Hooghly and South 24 Parganas.
Complete details of participation and a partial list of competing Durga Pujas for the awards were previously published here.
