Our Retell, Remix and Rejoice Contest is Back

Can you make World Storytelling Day special with a 10?
As Pratham Books turns ten, we bring you 10 months of non-stop celebrations. We are kickstarting the celebrations with our Annual Remix Contest on World Storytelling Day (20th March). 
Give us your best, remixed, TENTASTIC story! 

What you need to do: Check available illustrations. Dream up a story. This year’s theme is ‘10’, so make sure your story uses only ten illustrations apart from the cover page. Write your story. Email it to us. Be original. 

If in doubt, take a look at the sample story written by our editor Mala Kumar – ‘Mezzo, Tazo and Jaggu’. 
The first prize winner gets a printed, laid-out version of the winning story.
