Pratham Books: Retell, Remix and Rejoice Contest (India/ worldwide)
Deadline: 30 April 2012

20th March is World Storytelling Day. And we are back with our annual Remix contest. Read our book “Jungle School” in English, Hindi and Kannada to all the little ones around you. And if you are feeling more adventurous, dive right into our remix contest.

Forgot how it works? Here's a refresher course: Take the images available here, weave your owns story and email us the remixed version. We've added a few more images to the pool of images so that you have more content to play around with. You may use how many ever images you want from the pool of images. This year's theme is “Trees”, so be sure to include them on your story. Stories that are drastically different from the original have a better chance to win.

The first prize winner for each category gets a printed, laid-out version of the winning story.
