Mumbai: Google is inviting Indian children to doodle their ideas on diversity.
The company on Wednesday announced the 2012 Doodle 4 Google competition where children between the ages of 5 and 16, will be invited to create a doodle (using the Google logo) around the theme of ‘Unity in Diversity’.
The winning doodle will be featured on Google India’s home page on November 14, Children’s Day.
Over the years, the Google doodle has become a popular and innovative way for the company to commemorate important events, like the independence days of various countries (Including India’s, which was depicted with a peacock doodle), special days and events like the Olympics, and celebrate the birthdays of well-known people, among other things.
Now Indian children will get a chance to have their work of art put online.
Announcing this year’s competition, Nikhil Rungta, country marketing head at Google India, says:”Doodle 4 Google is a great opportunity for students to explore the intersection of art and technology, while sharing their talents and creativity on a national scale. Through this programme, we hope participants will have fun, think creatively and learn something new all at the same time.”
According to Rungta, last year’s winning doodle by Varsha Gupta, from Delhi NCR, showcased in vivid detail the land of different cultures that is India. “This year we expect the children of India to showcase to the world how India is united in diversity,” he added.
