If you are in college and have penchant for always asking ‘why not?, an aptitude towards finding innovative solutions or a knack for finding creative ways to make your world better... then the Innominds Awards is just the right platform for you.

There are four categories in the ‘Innominds’ contest that are open to participation, and you are welcome to apply either as an individual or as a team. A preliminary Jury of eminent personalities will evaluate your online entries and shortlist the nominations for each of the four categories. All nominees will present their entries to a final panel of judges and a live audience before the Awards function slated to be held in the first week of April. The final jury panel reserves the right to interact with entrants during this final evaluation process through a viva voce process. Winners will receive a cash prize of Rs 5000 along with a trophy and citation/certificate. Please note, that the entire process leading up to the selection of nominees would be conducted online.
