Shahidul Alam receives Shilapakala Padak 2014

The founder of Drik and Pathshala, legendary photographer Shahidul Alam has been awarded the prestigious Shilapakala Padak.

He received the award from the hands of the President Md Abdul Hamid on Thursday at Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy.

“Regardless of how many awards one might get from wherever in the globe, to be appreciated by one’s own community is always special,” Shahidul said.

“This is especially so in a medium like photography, which has long been ignored. I receive this award on behalf of the entire Bangladeshi photographic fraternity,” he said.

This year seven senior artistes received the Shilpakala Padak. 

Shahidul was awarded the Shilpakala Padak for his extra ordinary contributions to the world of photography.

The other recipients were Bazlur Rahman Badol for dance, Lucky Inam for drama, Pandit Amaresh Roy Chowdhury for song, Pandit Madan Gopal Das for music, Syed Abdullah Khalid for fine arts and Ashraful Alam for recitation.
