The Arts University Bournemouth (AUB) in the UK has picked a student from Delhi as one of five winners of an art competition, “Who are you in a gender defined world?” School students from across India were asked to create work that looked at their identities in the context of gender attitudes in society.
Akshita Wadhwana from Sardar Patel Vidyalaya School in South Delhi was declared third from a shortlist of 100 students.
Wadhwana wins a part scholarship to study at the AUB and a chance to see her film featured at the ‘Gender Defined World Exhibition’ at the India Habitat Centre in New Delhi on May 2, 2014.
The other competition winners were Muzammil Hussain, Richa Jain and Upam Lahkar (all from Dehradun) and Kuheli Raha (from West Bengal).
Jain and Hussain will both have their work featured on huge hoarding adverts across UK.
