PICASSO

* * *

Picasso is an event that makes one’s long hidden creativity radiate from their piece of art. In this event, the students shall do photography inside the campus based on a theme given to them. Further, a collage is to be designed from the photographs taken. Also, a puzzle is to be solved which may consist of reforming a distorted image, forming the original image from the parts, etc. The collage created by the students will be uploaded on the Facebook page of the event and the participants need to grab maximum number of likes. The participants who qualify the first round (based on collage designed, number of likes obtained and puzzle solved) have to project their ideas and imagination in the most ingenious way possible by creating a visual tour (message-giving video) of the photographs clicked by them. That is, they have to make the allocated theme-related message-giving video from the images clicked. Based on the cinematography (effects & photography), transition of photos, sequencing of photos, audio & video synchronization, text/tag lines used, message conveyed, etc. the winners will be declared. Come, participate in the most creatively and uniquely designed event!
