2013-09-05 07:42:38 - Zameen.com held its prize distribution ceremony on 29th August 2013, at its headquarters in Lahore for the photography contest of the Independence Day of Pakistan. The winner of the contest was Mr Zaheer Khokhar hailing from Sukkur and the prize was awarded by Zeeshan Ali Khan the CEO of the Zameen.com
The zeal and spirit of the patriots of Pakistan finally got rewarded on 29th August as Zameen.com held its prize distribution ceremony at its headquarters in Lahore. The promised prize which was the favourite smartphone of the year, Nokia Lumia 520, was handed to the winner of the photography competition of 14th August, the day of independence of Pakistan.
No doubt the photo contest invigorated a sagacity of jubilation of being a free and a sovereign nation of Pakistan among the people but at the headquarters of Zameen.com the judges simply got thrilled by experiencing the ever electrifying spirit which was reflected in the pictures uploaded by the contestants on Zameen’s Facebook fan page.
Judging among the contestants was particularly challenging
for the jury as more than 500 unique entries were received which were also voted by the nation according to their preferences and the winner was to be filtered out from the haze of 6000 collective votes. But despite the technological advancement of the prominent cities of Pakistan, the humble city of Sukkur wrenched away the prize through its unique and rather natural depiction of emotions of the children of Pakistan as they waved the flag of their beloved country on a red bricked rooftop of their humble abode. The picture was posted by Zaheer Khokhar and though the picture was humble yet it harnessed a lot of joyous energy and felt very natural.
The ecstatic winner of the competition, while expressing his happiness said, “This is the first time I have ever been rewarded in any competition in my life. I was really looking forward to this event ever since my picture got selected by Zameen.com as the winner.” Khokhar further added, “Actually getting rewarded in real is a rare sight to behold. Zameen.com sure upholds in authenticity by its practices and fulfilments of its concrete promises. I use Zameen.com myself and will now recommend it to my friends as well to find any property in Pakistan.”
Omar Mullick, the celebrated US based Pakistani photographer and the judge of the photography contest of the Independence Day celebration, while choosing the picture of Mr Zaheer Khokhar remarked, “My choice is the crowd photo of the kids with the flags. They are running. It is dynamic - lots of action and the characters in the frame are doing something interesting individually without crossing each other’s space. The photographer knows a little something about photojournalism. It is a perfect moment and they've captured it nicely.”
