The Ministry of External Affairs is organizing an open competition to design a logo that would best reflect the spirit of the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas Conventions which are organized by the Government in India. Traditionally PBD Conventions have been a most important platform for engagement of the Government with the overseas Indian community (both Non-resident Indians and Persons of Indian-origin).
At PBD Conventions in India, Government focuses on issues of concern for the overseas Indian community, informs them about policies and initiatives which will benefit them and invites them to contribute to their country of origin. With the Government reaching out to the Indian community overseas, PBDs will be an extremely significant occasion and platform to reconnect with the Diaspora and reenergize their engagement with the Government.
PBD Conventions are traditionally held from 7 to 9 January in India.The next and 15th edition of PBD, will be held from 7 to 9 January in India. The last edition of PBD was held from 7 to 9 January 2015 in Gandhinagar, Gujarat.
All interested Indians (resident and non-resident Indian citizens, as well as Overseas Citizens of India and Persons of Indian Origin) are invited to participate in the Competition for Design of a logo for PBD. The logo should bring out the essence of the PBD and reflect the desire for a stronger and vibrant connect between the Government and the overseas Indian community.
The last date of submission is the midnight of 5th July, 2016.
The winning entry will get Rs.50, 000/- cash prize.
