August 2020 ISC Contests and Reward Programs Schedule

Here are alerts and updates of ongoing contests and forthcoming ones for the month of August. They are part of what is known as a reward program for members of ISC. While now and then we may have activities that will fetch only enhanced points, most of them do have good cash prizes. For queries related to any specific contest, you need to clear your doubt in a response to the thread in which the contest is announced.

1. Still ongoing from earlier:
(i) Education Series competition.
(ii) Topic based TOW contest August - Diplomacy.
(iii) Active GD on the National Education Policy 2020 .

2. Independence Day contests.
(i) India Independence Day contest - unique online celebrations by schools and colleges
(ii) Photo Challenge creative contest series - spread over two days of 14th and 15th August, there will be a series of photos put up (likely three minimum) and instructions will be given on what you have to write about the photo. The challenge lies in this - there is no fixed time when it will be uploaded and at any time it can be closed early/just before/just after the next photo is put up in a separate thread. So you have to be alert to check the forum off and on throughout the day for the two days.
(a) PhC #1: Colours of India Independence Day - caption it
(b) PhC #2: Colours of India Independence Day - compose it
(c) PhC #3: Colours of India Independence Day - write it
(d) PhC #4: Colours of India Independence Day Photo Challenge - script it
