Call to Participate in ‘India Is’ Global Video Challenge 2011

Enthusiastic and passionate people are invited to share their videos in a global video challenge entitled ‘India Is.’ The challenge is initiated by the Public Diplomacy Division of the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA).

The participants need not be professional filmmaker, photographer or keen travelers. People with camera, who have pictures depicting their perspective of India, can participate in the challenge. As each individual has his own perception of India, they can create their own videos. The challenge is not limited to any particular genre or type. Participants are welcome to share their views about India, through their videos.

The brand ambassadors for the global video challenge, ‘India Is,’ are Dr. Shashi Tharoor and Mr. Shekhar Kapur.
