Deadline Extended : Retell, Remix and Rejoice Contest (Just for the Kids)

We've been enjoying the remixed entries for the contest that we ran to celebrate World Storytelling day. And we got a flood of entries around midnight of April 20, the official closing date! The last minute rush! Thank you, folks!

We noticed that most entries have been from adults. Since school holidays have just started, we've decided to give children (below 16 years) some more thinking time and have extended the deadline to 9th May 2011.

So get your kids, nieces, nephews or grandchildren to put on their thinking caps and send in their entries. Entries can be in English, Hindi, Marathi, Kannada or Urdu.

A quick recap of the contest :

Take the images available here, weave your own story and email us the remixed version. Pssstt......Stories that are drastically different from the original have a better chance to win and yes the first prize winner for each category gets a printed, laid-out version of the winning cool is that!

Having starting trouble? Read our editor's remixed version of the book.
