This year Ansh Maria and Vyom won the 1st place prize in drama and were offered a chance to work with filter copy.

These college fest have big sponsors like wai wai noodles, dominoes and many other stalls for entertainment and refreshments. These stalls usually pay around 10-20 grand for permit. Such big sponsorship funds the streamers, flyers , ball drop for the events and PR activities like hosting the other contingents. To maintain anonymity colleges don’t use their own name but instead make up a contingent. This method prevents any undue influence from being exerted. This also promotes fair judgement and a merit based system.
