Sharod Utsav Samman is prestigious Award Ceremony for Durgapuja Organizers & brainchild of EVENTEX, an event management company based in Bangalore with pan India operations.

Sharod Utsav Samman was born with one overarching thought—to encourage Durga puja committees to excel in the organisation of Pujas, by awarding the best performers. Sharod Utsav Samman is thus a celebration of excellence.

We divide pujas into various categories based on the budget and further award excellence in various subcategories, like Best Pratima, Best Venue, Best Puja Publicity etc. and even for eco-friendly practices.

Our jury comprises of eminent women and men from various walks of life.

We started on a modest scale in Bangalore in 2018, in 2019 Sharod Utsav Samman became the premier award programme in Bangalore, in 2020 Sharod Utsav Samman became Digital Sensation through Virtual Award Ceremony & in 2021 Sharod Utsav Samman widened it's horizon with Pujo Parikrama to cover major Durgapuja @ Kolkata which became super hit & SUS became a Global Award Ceremony Property & received participation from all over India, UK & Ireland.  In 2022, Sharod Utsav Samman has become truely Global Award Ceremony while receiving nominations from 5 Continents - Asia, Africa, Europe, North America, South America.

This year we intend to raise the bar of Sharod Utsav Samman as 2nd year of Destination Award Ceremony @ Radha Regent Hotel in Bangalore and we offer you a chance to exhibit your excellence on the global stage. The celebration simply getting bigger & better every year. This year we are also introducing BEA AWARDS - Bengali Entrepreneur Award to encourage the Entrepreneurship in Bengali Community.
