Global online competition for children in the 4-15 age group

Kerala Tourism will hold an online painting competition for children worldwide in memory of Edmund Thomas Clint, a prodigy who created more than 25,000 works of art before he died one month short of his seventh birthday.

Clint, son of M. T. Joseph and Chinnamma Joseph, died on April 15, 1983 of kidney failure, but his masterful works continue to astonish art lovers and critics for their vibrancy, depth, and maturity. The competition, coordinated by IT solutions provider Invis Multimedia, is open to all children between the ages of 4-15 years.

The paintings can be on any theme related to Kerala and the each participant can submit up to five entries online through the Kerala Tourism website http://www.keralatourism.org/clint.

There is no entry fee for the competition which will be open from January 15 to May 31. Children can register online for the painting competition.
