Description
If you are confused what photo should you upload, we can help you with that, see the following descriptions to help you upload the photos!
Colours of Life (Till Class V):
Life is in colours. You just need to keep an eye on the colours. This theme will absorb any photos which contain Different colours depicting different Aspects of Life, How good life is with colours and How colourful you see the world.
Wonders of Nature (Classes VI–VIII):
The nature is full of wonder, this goes without saying. This theme includes all the Flora, Fauna, Landscape and all other features available to us by the Earth. BUT, it should contain something full of wonder and should appeal everybody when looked at.
Spirit of Art (Classes IX–XII):
Here, Art does not refer to just any paintings or artist’s work, but anything which inspires and motivates somebody. Art is all about your perspective of seeing anything, your creative skill & imagination. This may include Painting, Music, Literature, Dance, or any other form of Art through your vision.
Crazy Kids (Moms & Dads):
As the theme describes, you need to upload the craziest picture you captured of your child. You may have caught him/her red-handed doing some mischievous stuff, or he/she was part of a ‘game’ he/she played with you? You need to show off your kid’s innocence as well as his/her naughty mind. What’s important are the pictures that remain in your memory even after a long time.
