Manick had other reasons to be excited about; the image of his winning entry Reflection was on the cover of The Laserist, the official magazine of the ILDA, followed by a three page interview inside.

In the preface of "The Laserist Interview: Manick Sorcar", writes the editor:

"Manick Sorcar may be seen as an enigma, but it's much simpler just to call him 'Jekyll and Hyde'. The mediums he utilizes to produce art span far beyond lasers. Yet by day, he is a mild-mannered electrical engineer. The Laserist was fortunate enough to get Manick to speak with us about his formative years in the business, his dual carriers, and passion he brings to each moment on the planet"
