I am Gazal, 9th Grade Student from The Ashram School, Guindy, Chennai; and my cousin Kowshik Raj, 11th Grade Student from Balalok School, Virugambakkam Chennai , we both love art and passionate in creative drawings came up with an innovative idea of creating an art community site with challenging themes to induce innovation and unleash the power of creativity among younger generation. At the same time, potential artwork should be rewarded to encourage the aspirants , so we hand picked the idea of MillionDollarHomepage after lot of web research ( Honourable thanks to Mr.Alex Tew), and combined the idea of pixel advertising with art community site. Total themes would be around 25, and are categorized based on: Innovation, Awareness, Integrity and Other.Got funds and guidance from our parents to make this idea into an innovative reality.
