The award instituted by Srjan, an organisation founded by Odissi Guru late Kelcharan Mohapatra, is presented to artistes who have excelled in their respective fields but have received little recognition from the media and public, its Director Ratikanta Mohapatra told reporters here yesterday.

The award, carrying a cash prize of Rs 50,000 each and a citation, would be presented by Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on September 9, the last day of the five-day award- giving ceremony, Mohapatra said.
