Brief description of Categories under which KISS stories can be submitted
- Stand-up Comedy Act – This leg is meant for the people who believe they possess the acting skills! Participants are invited to mimic, enact, try ventriloquism, do whatever they are good at to ensure their act brings out the ‘simple solution’ to life’s complex situations while looking at the funny side. In short make the jury fall off their chairs laughing! The length of the video entry must be upto 2 mins in .flv format.
- Animation – For the hardwired animators – using the DOCOMO logo, participants need to show how ‘DO’ and ‘CO’ help ‘MO’ to solve his problem through a simple solution! The length of the animation films should be between 05 to 60 seconds in .flv format
- Comic Strip – For all the illustrators, designers, artists or people who are good at drawing, here is a chance relive the good ol’ memories and create comic strips that highlight simple solutions to life’s jalebis. Participants must bring to life imaginary characters, let speech bubbles talk their tongue and explain their perception of keeping it simple! The comic strip size must be 1024*768px in .JPG format
- Script – For the creative geniuses who really believe in the power of pen and can bring words to life through their interesting narrations, scripts or stories. Tata DOCOMO is inviting them to pen-down an interesting script for us showcasing how the complexities of life were dispelled using simple solutions.
