Google Invites children to ‘Doodle’ on its India home page

To celebrate scientific and artistic achievements, festivals and historic events, Google keeps redesigning its logo. Google’s Doodle is an inspiration for many young children and seeing their continuous enthusiasm to contribute to the world of ‘Doodles’, Google has announced the commencement of the third Doodle 4 Google competition in India, which will also mark Children’s Day celebrations on November 14, 2011.

Children from across the country have been invited to participate in this ‘doodling’ competition and get a chance to feature their ‘Doodle’ on November 14, 2011 on www.google.co.in. The competition is open for all children from the age group of 5 to 16 years. This year, the theme is ‘India’s gift to the world’.

In addition to the winner’s doodle appearing on Google.co.in on November 14, the star Doodler will receive a technology starter package, which will include a laptop, a year’s Internet connection and a Rs 200,000 technology grant for the school that he or she will represent.

Announcing the launch of the third D4G contest, Nikhil Rungta, Country Marketing Head, Google India, said, “Doodle4Google has become a global platform giving young children an opportunity to showcase their talent globally. In India, we have noticed great enthusiasm amongst children toward the Doodle4Google competition. Last year, the competition crossed the 100,000 mark from just 4,500 entries in the 1st year and we expect it to grow much higher this year.”

Just like last year, the participants will be clubbed in three different categories- 1st to 3rd Standard, 4th to 6th Standard and 7th to 10th Standard. Top Indian art schools will select the top 200 entries from each category which will be reviewed by a panel of judges. The judges will then shortlist 15 doodles from each category, bringing it down to a total of 45 final Doodles.

All the final entries will be exhibited for public voting and based on the number of votes, one winner from each category will be selected. Each of the winners will receive a technology starter kit which consists of a laptop and an Internet connection. Dennis Hwang, the original Google Doodler, will then choose the final winning Doodle from the total 45 finalists.

Last date for submissions is September 15, 2011. After a series of elimination by celebrity panel of judges, 45 best Doodles will be displayed on the gallery (www.google.co.in/doodle4google). These entries will be open for public voting allowing users to vote for their favorite Doodle in each category. This year, three winners would be chosen in total, one from each group. The winning Doodle will be uploaded on the Google.co.in homepage on November 14 and all the winners will get a Technology Starter Package.
