The GoPro Challenge 2020 Winner Awarded the GoPro Max
Better Photography|August 2020
Intensely contested, with some brilliant photography coming into the final round, the award for The GoPro Challenge 2020 goes to 17-year old Priyanshu Singh from Varanasi. Congratulations Priyanshu for a brilliant, well-deserved win!

Interestingly, Priyanshu, who is currently studying in class 12, has been practicing photography with his cellphone for the past two years, borrowing cameras from his friends, particularly a friend’s GoPro, whenever it was available. “This photograph depicts an ascetic who is lost in the rapture of his celebration of Chita Bhasm Ki Holi (pyre ash Holi). This festival, particularly at the Manikarnika Ghat, is all about devotion and joy. I was drawn to his incredible energy, even though he seemed to be lost in the moment, as if in a trance. That’s when it struck me to make an image,” says Priyanshu.
