The International Centre Goa (ICG) and the Sunday Evening Quiz Club (SEQC) will be hosting the Annual All-Goa INCREDIBLE INDIA QUIZZES 2016 (IIQ 2016) on Independence Day, August 15th at The International Centre Goa, Dona Paula.
The turnout in past years has been extraordinary, and this time should be no exception. As always, IIQ 2016 will consist of two quizzes – the first one for Schools, which begins at 2 pm, and the second an Open quiz, which commences at 5 pm. The focus of both quizzes will be on all things Indian. The content will include audio, visual and video questions, and all the other bells and whistles that go into making an exciting contest. Both quizzes will be conducted by SEQC founder-members, the Schools edition by Rajiv D’Silva, and the Open edition by Aniruddha Sen Gupta. Both are accomplished quizzers and experienced quizmasters.
Great prizes, including cash rewards and trophies, are being offered by the organisers for the top three teams in each of the editions. Certificates will be awarded to all participating students in the Schools edition.
Participation is invited in teams of two for the Schools edition and for individuals for the Open edition. 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, teams of three participants will be composed on the spot, based on the points scored in the preliminary round. Participants in the Schools edition can also register for the Open edition. The last date for registration is Monday, 8th August 2016. UPDATE: Last date for pre-registration has been extended to Saturday, August 13. Participants can also register on the spot on the day of the event.
