The Riot of Colors Painting Competition

Riot of Colors at The Hindu Young World Painting Contest 2013

Colours ran riot as hundreds of students, armed with paint brushes and pallets, unleashed their creativity at the finals of this year’s The Hindu Young World Painting Competition at the Army Public School here on 10th February, 2013.

A multi – coloured circus, an animated magic show and the more obscure images from space – all these came alive on mini – canvases as around 450 students, shortlisted from over 2,000 from the city and its surroundings, vied for the top prizes.

Once their masterpieces were ready, the students were all anxious. Abhishek Chatterjee, a Class 6 student of Delhi Public School, East, who chose to paint a beach with several coconut trees and a lone man surfing, said : “I love drawing. Colours excite me.”

Topping Sunday’s contest in the junior category were Apeksha Pai of Vidyaniketan Public School, Hrithik Sridhar of St. Paul’s English School and A. Nikhil Nahar of Prasiddhi School.

In the senior category, the top prizes were won by Shalini Bandyopadhyay of Presidency School, Himashi Singh of Grace Art Creation and Sangeetha V. of Miranda English School.

Seven consolation prizes were given away in each category.

Sharing a quick tip on what helped her win, young artist Shalini said : “When I paint, I always make it colourful to attract people.”

Chief guest of the event and art historian at Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath H.A. Anil Kumar told students that the growth of the animation industry would lead to immense job opportunities for artists.

Meanwhile, Manjula Raman, Principal, Army Public School, said : “Your art is an expression that is individualistic. Your creation is a master piece of your feelings and emotions.”

The contest was judged by Babu Jattakar and V.R.C. Shekar, senior faculty members of Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath.

The presenting sponsor of the event was MIOT Hospitals, while Amrutanjan and Dabur were associate sponsors.

Max Life Insurance and Just Books were regional sponsors.
