Take part in “If I were the Bengaluru Mayor” writing contest, win cash prize!

What would you do if you were the Mayor? Research. Think. Write. And win prize!

Citizen Matters and ApartmentADDA invite citizens of Bengaluru to submit articles on the topic “If I were the Bengaluru Mayor”.

Entries can be in Kannada or English and between 800 to 1200 words. The best entry in each language has a chance to win a cash prize of Rs 10,000, sponsored by ApartmentADDA.

The contest, which is open to all citizens above 15 years, is an opportunity for participants to articulate their vision for Bengaluru, and a plan that they’d execute if they were the mayor.

The contest encourages Bengalureans to think on and engage with issues of importance to our city. Bengaluru has experienced significant social and economic growth in recent decades. However, much remains to be done. As citizens get more informed and active, this is a chance to share their perspective to take the city forward.

The judges for this contest are well-known Bengalureans from diverse backgrounds – governance, media, entrepreneurship and theatre, and include Prakash Belawadi, Harish Narasappa, Rasheed Kappan, Yatish Kumar and Manjula Sridhar.

Submissions will be judged on the substance and basis of the ideas presented, presentation and language, how practical and innovative the contestant’s thoughts are, the probable impact (short term and long term) of suggestions, etc.

Contest rules:

No participation fee applies. Entries must be submitted online by Thursday, 28th September 2017.

Participants can submit their entries at https://citizenmatters.in/mayor-contest-2017

There are two prizes – one each for the top English and Kannada submission respectively. All shortlisted articles will be published on Citizen Matters.
