Every year, as the Winter snow melts away in the warmth of Spring, we're blessed with a whole gamut of colours. It's a time when people in various parts of world celebrate this transformation in a Festival of Spring Colours, Holi.


Though mainly Indian, Holi is celebrated beyond the subcontinent and has inspired many festivals and events in other parts of the world. People come together to spend time with loved ones and play with colours.


This year, many of us are still under some form of lockdown or the other, and perhaps won't get the opportunity quite yet to go out and experience playing with colours. But not to worry, we've got your back!

Join us in celebrating the Festival of Colours

by participating in our Colouring Contest!

  • Download and extract the image pack using such software as WinZip or WinRar. (If you encounter an error that claims the files are corrupted, please either individually download the file, or refer to this link.)


  • Choose the filetype most suitable for your use and colour it either digitally or by printing it out (up to A3) and using traditional media of your choice.


  • If you are using traditional media, make sure you scan or photograph your work clearly so that it is true to the colours you've used.


  • Upload the finished submission to your gallery with a link back to this journal and the hashtag #holi2021
