Code For Nepal announces "Ko Nepali" video and photo competition.

For all those Nepali photo enthusiasts and video makers, here is a fun competition for you! +Code for Nepal is accepting applications for "Ko Nepali" video and photo competition.

+Code for Nepal is a US non-profit organization focusing on internet access, open data, and digital literacy in Nepal. It was formed by co-founders Mia and Ravi at World Bank's Open Data Day hackathon on February of 2014 after reviewing the landscape of Internet access and open data in Nepal.
The competition aims to recognize digital literacy skills and facilitate conversation about who is a Nepali and what it means to be a Nepali, while strengthening a culture of creativity and civic debate online.
Any Nepali amateur photographers and videographers, living in Nepal or abroad are eligible for this competition except for the professionals. There is no charge for the competition but the entries should reflect on "Who is Nepali?". Only one submission is accepted and for video, should be no longer than 3 minutes and can be in Bhojpuri, English, Maithili, Nepali, or Tamang.

This competition might be a way to know who we, as a Nepali, really are. Different perspectives from Nepalese all around the world would be a helping ground to share different forms of ideas. Each unique concept would be something new to learn. At the very least, this could be a better time allocated for some fun competition online.
