India has a vast dynamic, young and healthy population – it is also a workforce which has the ability to change the world. What this young population so far did not have was an opportunity to put their talents to work. Harnessing this latent energy and talent has been a herculean task. A new initiative was launched on 15 July 2015 in form of Skill India campaign. The mission was launched by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi with the aim to train over 40 crore people in different skills by 2022. The campaign includes various initiatives of the government like “National Skill Development Mission“, “National Policy for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, 2015“, “Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY)” and the “Skill Loan scheme“.

There is a charm and beauty in the sight of a skilled man working at his craft. This aspect of the achievement of the Skill India campaign was beautifully captured by several professional photographers of the country who participated in the contest by Photo Division for the 6th National Photo Awards.

The following photographs were selected by a national jury from among the hundreds of contributors this year.
