The Uncommon Box stands for the rights that help individuals to lead the most meaningful life they can. It is this inspiring thought that led us to collaborate with Safecity, an international not-for-profit organization in a special 2-week campaign called simply #TUBWITHSAFECITY
‘Sihayi ki Aawaz’ was the Nano tales writing contest held during the month of September 2017 as part of our joint campaign to spread awareness against sexual violence. It has been a delight for us to come across such thought-provoking entries.
Sexual violence is one of the most heinous crimes that is spreading rapidly throughout the globe. We come across many such survivors who have been victims of sexual assault, rape, and sexual abuse. It can happen anywhere, anytime and with anyone. It is a silent epidemic, often going unreported because of the stigma attached to the victim.
It is time to change and only we can bring about the change.
“The challenge thrown to the writers was to pen down their thoughts on not more than 20 words on the theme of sexual violence. The participating writers were given the freedom to either choose the horrors of sexual violence or a strong protest against it.”
This contest reconfirms The Uncommon Box’s determination to keep strengthening itself to be the most preferred platform for artists of all genres.
In the span of two weeks of the contest, we received wonderful pieces of writings with some magical craftsmanship in words. Unfortunately, few got disqualified due to non-compliance of rules, so we request our participants to be more careful in future.
Though it has been a tough job for the team to choose the winners for the competition as each one possess the mark of excellence, the team came up with 10 exceptional nano tales from among the entries.
Keeping in mind the rules for the competition, these selections have managed pretty well to bring out the actual essence of the given theme.
At the very end, we would like to conclude that the enthusiastic response we received for this unique campaign was very heartwarming.
We would like to thank each and every participant for their effort. This encourages Team TUB to work harder and present new thoughts and ideas each day.
A special word of acknowledgment to SafeCity for being wonderful partners to collaborate with on such an important social issue. We hope to continue with our social responsibility initiatives in this manner.
The Uncommon Box is always trying to come up with new and innovative ideas for conducting contests, catering to all genres of art, on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis.
