Fanatic Fans Challenge Finals - Bengaluru !!!
The opportunity of a lifetime for Thejasvi & Aakash!
The RCB FFC was conducted at the ITC Gardenia Hotel today in Bengaluru.
The four finalists selected from the many FFC applications from Bengaluru were: Thejasvi & Vivek Sharma for Local Photo Champion; and Shreyas Pai & Aakash Deshpande for Local Blog Champion.
The judges for the Finals were Mr. Jim Rydell -for the Photographers and Ms. Shireen Dastagir - for the Bloggers.
During the interview, Thejasvi showcased photos that he had taken during the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in 2010. Finalist Vivek, did not have cricketing photographs, but he did have other interesting photos. The fact that Thejasvi had cricketing pictures gave him a slight edge.
Both the bloggers, Shreyas & Aakash, were very confident and good in their approach. What differentiated them was how they loved RCB! They were both asked to name 5 uncapped RCB players and only Aakash managed to do that successfully.
And you've not heard anything till you hear what happened next!
Just as the the Finals were concluding, ALL the RCB players came to the lobby next to the Team Room for tea !!!
We took this opportunity to get Virat Kohli, Zaheer Khan and AB de Villiers from the Team to come in and pose for a photo with all the four finalists! The finalists were needless to say extremely elated !
Finally, the WINNERS of the Bengaluru Fanatic Fans Challenge were - Thejasvi (Local Photo Champion) & Aakash (Local Blog Champion) ! Hearty Congratulations to you guys!
