General Information
India has been world renowned for its amazingly rich and diverse mix of cultures shaped by its history, traditions and of course its people. Besides its culture and people, India has slowly moved from a 'developing nation' just two decades back, and emerged as a critical and decisive country that is shaping the contours of the world economy. 

India is not only seen as a tourist destination for millions of people but also an investment option and now is the time for the world to see India for what it is; a melting pot of talent, innovation, diversity, cultures and beauty.

The Public Diplomacy Division of the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) is launching a global initiative called the 'India Is' Video Challenge and we're inviting the world to participate. Don't worry if you're not a professional filmmaker, photographer or even an avid traveler who has explored the last of India's little by-lanes. As long as you're equipped with a camera, the passion to tell a great story, and the willingness to share your film with a global audience, you're ready to roll.

Participants are encouraged to create a short video (maximum 3 minutes) to share with a global audience just exactly what their perception of “India Is”. The Video Challenge will highlight and showcase India’s immense soft power. More so, all the content that shall be promoted by this platform will be generated by the Indian Public, visitors of India and Indian aficionados the world over.
