Awards and Rewards

Niranjana Prashasti and Shankara Sahithya Prashasti:

The contribution of Puttur to the works of Kannada literatures such as    Dr. Shivarama Karanth, Sri Niranjana, Sri A. P. Subbayya, Baindoor Ananda Rao, Sedioyapu Krishna Bhat have left indelible marks on Kannda culture and literature. It was our good fortune that Dr. Karant was one of our founder members of the management. It is therefore fitting that a study Centre is founded here and that an award is instituted in the name of another state award Sri Niranjana to be confressed every year on some part of writer whose contribution to creative writing in Kannada in phenomenal. The Award carries a Cash award of Rs. 10000/- and a citation.

Along with this recently another literary award was instituted by Sri Siddamoole Shankaranarayana Bhat. The objective was both to encourage and honour them so that they may inspire more and more people to take to writing. This was found necessary especially when producing works of literary merit is becoming far and few. The Award carries a Cash award of Rs. 5000/- and a citation.
