Of these 107 paintings - Five were adjudged for the 'Popular Choice Awards'.
Speaking on the same Mr. A. Srikanth, CEO - Kokuyo Camlin Limited, said, "We congratulate the winners from all over India. All though it has been four decades now, All India Camel Color Contest initiative is still very much close to our heart. We are immensely happy to have had such a great response from all over India for this contest. "This is a small beginning to motivate the schools to display children's paintings as display of painting is more motivating for a child than any prize," added Mr. Srikanth, who is confident that the schools would give more importance of art experiences and support these activities.
