Online Jury

The annual jury for the year 2021 was held in January 2022, due to the impending uncertainty with regards to admissions and exams. Kala Sakshi decided to extend their submission dates so that all the students got a fair chance. 

Like every year this year too we had a two-tier jury with the later being a proper interview with the jury members and selected students in the newly accustomed online format.

  • Vasundhra Tewari Broota – Eminent Artist
  • Shukla Sawant – Artist & Art Historian
  • Tariq Allana – Associate Director, Art Heritage Gallery

We can’t thank Disha & Anuj Batra, who very graciously have sponsored the awards for this year.
