Street Child World Cup Photography Wins International Award
Posted on the 9th October 2018
Vicky Roy, a former street child from India who is now a professional photographer, has received an honourable mention from the International Photo Awards 2018 for his photography at the Street Child World Cup Moscow 2018.
The International Photography Awards are a group of awards for professional, non-professional and student photographers on a global scale which are awarded annually at the Lucie Awards gala, this year held on October 28 in New York.
Vicky said: “The Street Child World Cup uses the power of football to raise awareness and tackle the widespread stigma faced by street children, inspiring countries, governments and communities to better protect, respect and support street children worldwide. Being a former street child myself in Delhi I have committed myself to give these children a voice by showing their lives through my photos.”
Prints of Vicky’s award-winning work will be exhibited on Saturday 27 October 2018 in Cambridge at St Paul’s Community Centre, along with art made by other professional artists and young people at the Street Child World Cup Moscow 2018, as part of the Street Child Cricket World Cup 2019 Summit.
Massive congratulations to Vicky and to JaJa Film Productions, who supported Vicky to be at the Street Child World Cup Moscow 2018. You can see more of Vicky’s photography on JaJa Film Productions’ website.
