At
Google we love to play!- even with our corporate logo. To celebrate
scientific and artistic achievements, festivals and historic events,
we keep redesigning our logo. Google’s Doodle is an inspiration for
many young children and seeing their continuous enthusiasm to
contribute to the world of ‘Doodles’, we are happy to announce
the commencement of the third Doodle 4 Google competition in India
which will also mark  Children’s Day celebrations on 14th
November 2011.



We
are inviting children from across the country to participate in this
exciting ‘doodling’ competition and get a chance to feature their
‘doodle’ on 14th November 2011 on

www.google.co.in
.
The competition is open for all children from the age group of 5 to
16 years. This year, our chosen theme is
‘India’s
gift to the world’
.


In
addition to the winner’s doodle appearing on Google.co.in on Nov 14,
2011, the star Doodler will receive a technology starter package
which will include a laptop, an year’s Internet connection and a Rs
2,00,000 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 4500 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.


Participating
in the competition is simple:

  • Children studying in class
    1st to 10th can participate in the competition. These will be divided
    into three categories- 1st to 3rd Standard; 4th to 6th Standard and;
    7th to 10th Standard

  • All participants must
    register on the website (
    www.google.co.in/doodle4google). The submission may be
    either individually or through the school. The school route is valid
    only if the school is organizing to collect and submit the doodles on
    behalf of their students.

  • Last date for submissions
    is 15th September, 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 we will have 3
    winners in total one from each group

  • Winning Doodle will be
    uploaded on the Google.co.in homepage on 14th November 2011, Children’s
    Day and all the winners will get a Technology Starter Package.


So
gather those art supplies. All it takes to enter is a drawing on
paper using your favorite medium (crayons, markers, colored pencils,
whatever!) —
