iqwat Talent Hunt 2020

17 Sep 2020 – 25 Oct 2020

How it unfolded

For the first time ever, we organised a virtual World-Wide Talent Hunt – an initiative to bring together Kashmiri Pandit community members around the globe onto one platform. It was conceived with the idea to discover, support and engage the talent across all age groups.

As Mark Twain said – Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”

A 5 week long artistic extravaganza where more than 750 people from different age groups spread over 17 countries came together to compete against each other in different categories. With prizes worth ₹8,25,000 up for grabs, participants made sure that it’s their job to put perfection into their art and come out victorious.

Our jury panel consisted of 15 different experts in their fields. They judged the entries from their respective categories and the results were announced on 15th Nov. Kiran Kumar, a veteran actor, introduced the event and announced the winners.

Success of any show cannot be judged on a single parameter and iqwat Talent Hunt’s success is due in large part to the overwhelming participation and impeccable management of the contest by the whole team.
