Here is a chance to make Rs 1 lakh by caricaturing UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

The Bangalore-based Indian Institute of Cartoonists (IIC) has announced an unusual contest for professional and amateur cartoonists across the globe to draw toons of Gandhi and Singh. The contest is being sponsored by state Congress chief RV Deshpande’s trust. IIC managing trustee, VG Narendra, a noted cartoonist himself, agrees it’s a rather rare kind of contest. “It is aimed at helping talented artists in every possible manner,” he says. Entries have to be submitted by 15 November. Email [email protected]. Reckon Open’s attempt (alongside) stands a chance?
