Reminder : Extended Deadline for the 'Retell, Remix and Rejoice Contest'



While we are on the topic of celebrating imagination (watch this amazing video which celebrates a little boy's creative and entrepreneurial spirit), here's a small reminder that we've extended the deadline for the 'Retell. Remix and Rejoice contest'. The new deadline is 25th May, 2012.

Get your kids to put on their creative hats, look at the assorted images available and pick the ones they want. Once they've decided, they just have to put the pictures together and weave a story and send it to us. Simple!

We didn't want to leave the adults out, so we've even created a category for people above the age of 16 years. So, send in your lovely stories this weekend.



The details :
Take the images available here, weave your ownstory and email us the remixed version. We've added a few more images to the pool of images so that you have more content to play around with. You may use how many ever images you want from the pool of images. This year's theme is “Trees”, so be sure to include them on your story. 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 story....how cool is that!

Having starting trouble? 
Browse through our editor's remixed versions of the original story.We have one in English and one in Hindi.
