    Dual role interview contest - winners

    We were happy to have received 14 entries for the dual role interview contest. Frankly, the jury panel of editors found many of the entries not up to the mark and hence there was little competition for the winning prizes. However, this was the first time we were conducting the interview concept theme and we are sure there will be good improvement the next time round.

    The winner of the top prize of a cash award of Rs.200/- is Soundharya. Other than relevant questions and very apt answers, her entry beautifully brought out the importance of conservation and brought in the gender aspect, too. It was considered the best entry of the lot by all the panel members.

    The second prize winners are Umesh and Sankalan Bhattacharya. They each win a cash award or Rs.150/-. The entry by Umesh was extremely creative and original and the importance of exploration of oil for self-sufficiency was a very good touch. The entry by Sankalan had a wonderful, eye-grabbing title which immediately perks your interest. Overall a nice interview with good questions and answers.
    [Umesh - one main error in your entry was the word apprehended instead of apprehensive. Please take care to re-check henceforth the correct vocab.]

    A consolation prize of Rs100/- is being awarded to Aditya Mohan. Another creative entry which perked us up. The answers were interesting, but the questions could have been far more concise. Brownie points for the introductory start to the interview - well done, there! An improvement in English could get you a podium finish for sure next time round.

    Other valid entries may be given enhanced points and cc too in a few days. Thanks for the enthusiastic participation. If members are keen, we can have a similar contest again so let us know in a response to this thread and we will schedule one at a later date. Don't forget to join us to congratulate the winners as well!

    I thank ISC for my award and I have also taken the note of the comment of the Managing Editor regarding the word 'apprehended'.

    I take this opportunity to congratulate the other winners. This was a new type of contest and gave us opportunity to present our creative skills.

    Congratulations to Soundhraya the winner of this contest and I too personally feel her presentation was very nice and apt. My appreciation to Umesh, Sankalan and Aditya on winning the other prizes. I do agree with the views expressed by the ME about the other entries and we could have done better. Even my own contribution made me to smile but ended up with a satisfaction of participating the contest. Cheers up next time!

  • #654624
    Hearty congratulations to Soundharya, the winner of the contest, Umesh and Sankalan, the 2nd prize winners and Aditya, the consolation prize winner!
    Hope all the winners and other participants will take due note of the points suggested by the ME as the person who conducted the contest. I was preparing to participate but could not due to network problems.

    The cash rewards and points to the winners have been credited.
