When the whole world sits confined inside homes, let's come together on the virtual platform to celebrate Onam. Kerala Tourism invites all of you to participate in the Loka Pookkalam (Global Pookkalam Competition), so that we can fill the world with the vibrancy and happiness that Pookkalam (floral carpet) ushers in. Attractive prizes await you.
The online contest is divided into two categories — one for people residing in Kerala and the other for those outside the state. All individuals and institutions/associations/organisations are eligible to participate in the competition, which will begin on August 13, 2021 and conclude on August 23, 2021 midnight (IST).
There is no age limit or entry fee for this contest. Just check in to www.keralatourism.org/contest/pookkalam2021/. Fill in your basic details for registration. You will get a registration code by email upon successful registration. Do mark the registration code on the floor beside the Pookkalam (Floral Carpet) in a legible format.
Take two images - a nice photograph of the Pookkalam along with the registration code and another photo of participant (s) with/without family members alongside the Pookkalam. Login to the website and upload the images.
Kindly note that entries without registration code in the prescribed format would be summarily rejected. Do add a title and a short description. Image file must be in .jpg format, having a minimum 1 mb and not exceeding 5 mb in size. You can also share a 30-second video of the Pookkalam but it is not mandatory.
A maximum of five entries can be uploaded under each category. The deadline is 12 midnight (Indian Standard Time) of August 23, 2021. In case of any technical issues while uploading photos, participants may write to firstname.lastname@example.org
