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 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.
