There are few who are truly capable of squeezing out the most out of every moment they spend on the planet. Edmund Thomas Clint was one of them, who in a mere 7 years, finished nearly 25,000 works of art. God’s Own Country will always cherish him, and today we invite children across the globe to showcase their own talent, with an opportunity to travel and experience Kerala with their families.
Clint’s short life was marred by many troubles but he never let any such thing affect his craft. From temples to kings, snake boats to massive poorams (temple festivals), this genius gave us his story in the best ways he could. So it is now up to us to celebrate and keep alight the fire that this great young man lit and hence, we introduce the 2018 Children’s International Online Painting Competition. It is our tribute to his passion and a call for others of his caliber to step to the forefront.
