The ChotaMota Foundation is a community, a forum, a movement but essentially just a collective of friends. It is what you want it to be. It is a space where one is not bound by the expectations of others, but driven by one’s own passion and curiosity.
ChotaMota aims to be a a space where you can express any thought and ask any question. You won’t always get an answer, but definitely a few kindred spirits willing to embark on a quest for the answer, often gathering a lot more questions and genuine opinions.
The ChotaMota Foundation is attempting to create a collection of unique expressive ideas. They hope for nothing more than to create a forum of thinkers, dreamers and creators.
Selected entries, apart from being provided with financial rewards, will be brought together for display in an exhibition at unique venues in New Delhi. All the entries will also be put up on display on the ChotaMota Foundation website and shared with all.
For convenience, they’d prefer the language to be English, Hindi or Bengali.
What exactly are you to do?
They are accepting entries in the following mediums:
Draw the teacher you love most, or the world leader you appreciate a lot. Draw the girl you dream of or the robot you one day wish to build. Draw yourself and don’t take any of these suggestions.
Draw out those narratives that grow in your mind into strips of comics, about 8-9 slides in length at the maximum.
Grab your phone or camera and get shooting. The movie you send in could be anywhere from 30 seconds to about 8 minutes in length, as long as it says what you want it to. You can use any style of movie making. Accompany your entry with a short (about 50 words) write up about it and make sure you give due credits to your team.
