He has received $5,000 (INR 3 lakh) as cash prize for winning the competition. His images received the most votes, and thus he was judged as winner. On winning, Dan said, “The Corvette Z06 photo challenge has been a great experience. I plan to use the prize money to help fund the pursuit of some of my personal projects, like documenting the Hardcore Happening, an annual Hot Rod Festival in upstate New York.”
Along with Dan, there were two two other students, who were also chosen for clicking the Z06, before it was publicly revealed at the 2014 New York International Auto Show. Check out the video below to see Dan’s creativity.
