On Independence Day last year, the International Centre Goa (ICG) in Dona Paula hosted the Incredible India Quizzes on Independence Day, August 15, in partnership with the Sunday Evening Quiz Club (SEQC). The turnout was overwhelming, and the seeds of an annual event were well and thoroughly sowed. This year, too, the Incredible India Quizzes will be held at the ICG, starting from 2pm on August 15.

The Incredible India Quizzes (IIQ) 2011 will be conducted as two editions -- the first one for Schools, and the second an Open quiz. The focus of both quizzes will be on all things Indian. The content will include audio, visual and video questions, buzzer rounds, and all the other bells and whistles that go into making an exciting event. The Schools edition will be conducted by SEQC founder-member Aniruddha Sen Gupta and the Open edition by Dr V. Muralidharan, both of them accomplished quizzers and experienced quizmasters.

Great prizes will be on offer for winners, participants and audience members.

Entries are invited for teams of two for each of the quizzes. Entry for both quizzes is free.

For the Schools edition, both team members must be from the same school, from any level up to Class XII. There is no restriction to the number of teams from each school.

For the Open quiz, any two people can team up. Participants in the Schools edition can also register for the Open edition, with the same or different partners.

The last date for registration is Saturday, August 13, 2011.To register or for answers to queries, e-mail, with 'IIQ 2011 registration' in the Subject line, and the names plus contact numbers or e-mail IDs of both team members (with school name, if entry is for the Schools edition) in the body of the message.
