You are invited to apply for the 12-month-long LHI Heritage Mapping Programme and pitch proposals that you would like to develop around the theme of Indian history, monuments and sites.
Celebrating India @75, this ambitious programme connects young India to the nation’s exciting heritage and legacy. It allows them to travel, learn, engage and win exciting prizes as they hone their skills and gear up for the road ahead.
Every month, we will select 4 candidates based on their proposals, who will work on developing their ideas into short films. These short films will be published on our website.
Each selected participant, whose film is published will get Rs 3000 as cash prize.
You can send your proposals for short films on local or lesser-known monuments, buildings of historic value or heritage sites.
We will contact the candidates whose proposals get selected. They will be assigned a mentor who will guide them in developing their proposals into short films. LHI’s team will also help them in the various facets of storytelling, research, filming, and presentation.
Targeted at anyone aged between 18 and 30, this programme aims at harnessing the participants' energy and interest in film and visual storytelling, to map local heritage sites, monuments, and take them to the world.
Participants of the LHI Heritage Mapping programme will get a chance to contribute and map the heritage and living arts and artisanal work around them and also learn some essential life skills. The importance of research, the ability to think creatively, communicate and present with confidence.
LHI’s team of award-winning journalists, historians and filmmakers will act as mentors, helping them bring out the best in themselves.
Come, let's map our heritage together!
