Biggest Art Award of the Year - Emerging Artist of the Year Award 2013 is very happy to announce the winner of the biggest art award of the year - ‘The Emerging Artist of the Year 2013 Award' presented by Glenfiddich. On 12th April, 2013, brought to the forefront 5 amazing talents of India. The winner of the award is the talent from South India – YUVAN BOTHYSATHUVAR.

The competition was very tough between all the five finalists – Ankush Safaya, Poorvesh Patel, Sumantra Mukherjee, Yuvan Bothysathuvar and Shivanand Shyagoti, but our respected jury took a very wise, unbiased and experienced decision making Yuvan the winner.
