Budding artists will get a huge canvas to showcase their talent soon, with The Hindu Young World and JSW Paints conducting ‘Futurescapes’, a painting competition for students from classes 3 to 12.

It is open to students residing in the southern States of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Telangana, along with the Union Territory of Puducherry. Entries for the preliminary round must be submitted by March 10.

The topics for the competition for the sub-junior (classes 3 to 5) category are ‘dream home’, ‘family picnic’, and ‘my favourite animal’. For the junior category (classes 6 to 8), the topics are ‘favourite festival’, ‘fun with family’, and ‘wildlife safari’. The themes for the senior category (classes 9 to 12) are ‘colours of India’, ‘family vacation’, and ‘clean and green India’. Participants may choose one of the three topics in their respective categories and paint on a white drawing sheet (32.5 cm in width and 25.5 cm in height) using water colours, crayons, or colour pencils.
