Google has announced the 6th edition of its annual Doodle4Google (D4G) competition. The theme of this year’s contest is ‘A place in India I wish to visit’. Google has already selected the 12 finalists from the innumerable entries it received from every corner of the country and the winner will be announced on November 12th in New Delhi.


According to Google India, the entries by children from across India has broken records and crossed 1 million.

Finally, on the basis of the votes along with the ranking by a reputed national jury, the national winner will be selected from all the finalists. The winning doodle will be placed on the google.co.in homepage on November 14, National Children’s Day. Online voting to pick the final winner has been ongoing from October 27 and will close on November 10.

This year too, the D4G participants are grouped into three categories: Group 1 comprising students from Class 1 to 3; Group 2 with students from Class 4 to 6; and Group 3 with students from Class 7 to 10. Breaking all previous records, this year, Google has received more than 1 Million entries. The entries were judged in two rounds; first by a group of Art Schools, and then by our national jury comprising of celebrated cartoonist Ajit Ninan, Art Director at Tinkle, Savio Mascarenhas and the Google Doodle team lead, Ryan Germick, states the press release of Google India.

Doodles on the Google homepage have made search on Google more fun and pleasing for its users worldwide. Doodles are now identified as the decorative changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists and scientists. Having a little bit of fun with the corporate logo by redesigning it from time to time is unheard of at many companies but at Google, it is part of the brand identity. While the doodle is primarily a fun way for the company to identify events and notable people, it also illustrates the creative and pioneering personality of the company itself, adds the statement.
