Awards Current Affairs April 4th Week 2018

 1. Winners Of ‘1st Print Biennale India 2018’ Given Away Awards In New Delhi

Lalit Kala Akademi, organised the award ceremony of the 1st Print Biennale India 2018 (PBI)in New Delhi. It was the first-ever International Print Biennale, an International Exhibition of Graphic Prints.
About the event:

About Lalit Kala Akademi
The Lalit Kala Akademi or National Academy of Art is India’s national academy of fine arts. It is an autonomous organisation, established in New Delhi in 1954 by Government of India to promote and propagate understanding of Indian art, in and outside the country.
LKA provides scholarships and a fellow program, and sponsors and organises exhibitions in India and overseas. It publishes a bilingual journal. It is funded by the Union Ministry of Culture. Its headquarters are at Ravindra Bhawan, Ferozshah Road, New Delhi. In April 2015, Government of India took over management control of Lalit Kala Akademi citing complaints regarding alleged administrative and financial irregularities in its functioning.
2. Rafael Nadal Win 11th Monte Carlo Masters Title.

sked to describe his emotions ­after claiming his 11th Monte Carlo title, Rafael Nadal grinned and ­replied that the montage of his previous victories played during the presentation ceremony had made him feel old. But it is his rivals who really deserve our sympathy.


Thirteen years after defeating Guillermo Coria to lift his first title here, Nadal is more dominant on this surface than ever. He was hardly stretched by Kei Nishikori in Sunday’s final, landing a 6-3, 6-2 victory in 1hr 33min. The Spaniard has now won his last 36 sets on clay, dating back to Rome last year. Not one of them was closer than 6-4. “This means a lot,” said Nadal, “especially because it is the first tournament in the year that I finished.” 


That surprising statistic includes his retirement from the Australian Open with a hip problem, and his decision to skip Acapulco, Indian Wells and Miami. In November, he also abandoned his appearances in Paris and London midway through. Physically, hard courts remain an issue for Nadal’s cranky knees – and the same is true of grass. Once his soles touch the red clay, though, everything seems to slot into place. He has moved superbly in Monte Carlo, overwhelming his opponents – most notably world No 7 Dominic Thiem in a one-sided quarter-final – with his physicality.


“Of course, the best match of the week was against Dominic,” said Nadal. “But I improved from yesterday [when he struggled slightly for consistency but was still too strong for world No 5 Grigor Dimitrov].”


Nishikori’s runner-up spot offered encouragement to a man who was appearing in only his fourth Tour-level event since August. But Nishikori says he is still recovering from the wrist-tendon injury he suffered last summer. “I have to take care every week,” he said.

4. Egyptian Photographer Mahmoud Abu Zeid Wins UNESCO Press Freedom Prize.

The United Nations` cultural agency has ignored warnings from Egypt and awarded the World Press Freedom prize to an imprisoned Egyptian photographer.
A jury on Monday awarded the honor to Mahmoud Abu Zeid, known as Shawkan, who has been in jail since he was arrested in Cairo in August 2013 for covering a demonstration at Rabaa Al-Adawiya Square.
Egypt`s Foreign Ministry strongly warned UNESCO against the move Sunday, saying that Shawkan faces terror-related charges.
The U.N. Working Group on Arbitrary Detentions says Shawkan`s arrest is arbitrary and his continued detention infringes his human rights.
Jury president Maria Ressa said the award, which recognizes the promotion of press freedom especially in the face of danger, “pays tribute to his courage, resistance and commitment to freedom of expression.”
