The DREAMWEAVERS of INDIA Contest!

To all aspiring writers, poets, sketch artistes, painters and photographers, this is for you!

Often there are so many talented and passionate men and women of art whose works go unnoticed. Their brilliance is lost with time, inability to find an opportunity to showcase their works and getting the desired audience. Well, the DREAMWEAVERS of INDIA initiative is for you.

This is not just another contest.

We are in process of creating a Book, that will feature the finest works from You. A first-of-its-kind attempt, the Book will feature selected Poems, Stories, Non-fiction Essays & Articles, Sketches, Paintings as well as Photography from you all (besides a few words from me). And the Book will include works from 3 different languages – English, Hindi and Bengali.

We call the book “DREAMWEAVERS OF INDIA”, and its first print edition is planned to be launched in Diwali 2020.

These are just baby steps, and we hope, as we grow, we shall invite other disciplines, art forms, languages & locations, in our endeavor, when our new website and other channels come up. And we shall continue to try and give platforms to all you budding artistes and take your works to the world.

Because, we believe:

“If you do, what you do, with passion, you deserve to be celebrated.”

However, when you participate in the Contest, there are prizes to be Won!
