As part of the ‘India Is’ initiative, the Public Diplomacy Division of the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India has launched the India Is Global Video Challenge 2014 competition.
The competition is open to anyone older than 18 and the challenge is to create short videos about India on three different themes.
The first place winning video will be awarded with a Canon EOS 6D Kit!
The Video submissions can be in any style – fiction, animation, documentary, live action, stop motion etc. – and must have relevance to one of the competition themes:
- India Is Youthful
India is a land that oozes youthfulness. With this theme, the participants are encouraged to capture the energy, vibrancy and the colors of the Indian spirit. Come delve into this aura of the Indian Youth.
- India Is Timeless
India connects with a person’s soul. Through music, sciences, art, conversation and people, it’s India’s soulful nature that catches one’s attention. Industries like medical tourism, religious yatras, and meditation camps let you peep into India’s soothing facet. Set in suburban and rural areas along the country, ‘India Is Timeless’ lets you find what connects them to the land.
- India Is Undiscovered
A special point for most photographers who travel into the undiscovered parts of this magnificent country, ‘India Is… Undiscovered’ reveals India’s rich natural heritage to the world. Through documenting animals or landscapes, here’s a theme that can encourage participants and viewers to take a look away from the cities.
The India Is Global Challenges were launched in 2011, allowing people world over to send in videos and photographs that spoke about their personal idea and experience of India.
