Kannada channel Suvarna institutes ‘Suvarna Kannadiga’ Award

Kannada television channel Suvarna is initiating the ‘Suvarna Kannadiga’ Award to coincide with the Suvarna Karnataka celebrations. The Award would recognise outstanding contribution towards Karnataka in the fields of sports, literature, technology, health, philanthropy, business, arts and culture. The Award would be conferred to the person, who would be selected through an extensive SMS poll conducted by the channel.

K Sanjay Prabhu, COO, Suvarna, said, “Karnataka has had many personalities who have added sparkle to the state’s honour, this Award is to recognise their golden contributions to Suvarna Karnataka.”

The list of contenders includes Anil Kumble (sports), Deepika Padukone (movies / fashion) and R K Laxman (arts/literature), among others.

The SMS poll, which is currently running on Suvarna, would conclude on March 10, 2008. The Suvarna Kannadiga will be chosen by popular vote. The Suvarna Kannadiga will be awarded on March 15, 2008 at an Award ceremony, which would be preceded by a seminar on the development of Karnataka. An eminent panel of speakers would discuss the way forward for Karnataka, including Mohandas Pai, Director HR, Infosys; P P Prabhu, Advisor, Governor of Karnataka; and E Raghavan, Editor, ET, among others.

Suvarna, a Kannada general entertainment channel, was launched in 2007 to coincide with the Suvarna Karnataka celebrations. Part of Asianet Television Network, which is a bouquet of satellite-based regional television channels, Suvarna provides wholesome family entertainment, which is captured in the tagline – ‘24-carat Manoranjane’.
