Show Your Artistic Talents, Participate In Odisha Bytes & Odisha Sambad’s Corona Creativity Contest

Bhubaneswar: Encouraged by the runaway success of our maiden event ‘Lockdown Recipes’, we are rolling out our second event Corona Creativity to motivate you and your near and dear ones to showcase your talents to the world.

With the COVID-19 pandemic and consequent lockdowns providing an opportunity to spend more time indoors, many of us have been trying to hone our creative skills like singing, mimicry, storytelling and poetry recitation. But why keep these artistic talents within the confines of family and friend circles?  Don’t you think it is time to unleash your creative energies before the world?

If you are ready, so are we. Then why wait any longer! A first-of-its-kind contest by any media house, Corona Creativity provides you just the opportunity you deserve. Record your creative performance on video and send it to us via Google Drive to on or before June 8, 2020.

Not only will we upload your videos on our websites, &, YouTube channels and social media platforms, the winners, to be adjudged by an eminent jury, will get prizes from eastern India’s leading jewellery brand Lalchnd Jewellers. The champion will get a diamond ring, while the second and third prize-winners would receive a diamond pendant and a gold coin respectively.
