The competition received close to 700 entries from across the country and 32 children are being recognized for their awe-inspiring paintings. All children are between 5 and 17 years of age. These include a category of winners elected by the jury and a separate list of winners that were voted by the public.
“We are simply mesmerized to see the imagination and creativity of our young minds and wish to congratulate every participant for portraying their emotions such beautifully. Every single drawing had a sense of originality, and affection towards our surrounding and nature. We are glad to see that children are trying to build their imagination and visual skills by replicating ideas on paper in this digital age, and receiving such overwhelming response to the art competition reiterates the importance of organizing these kinds of initiatives more frequently,” says Niki Hingad.
The paintings were judged by a selected jury based on creativity, originality, compositional skills, application of colours and the underlying thoughts.
