The Theme for Celebrating Life 2017

Celebrating Diversity in Bangladesh

Vote for your favourite candidates.

There is diversity in every nook and cranny of Bangladesh, you just have to keep your eyes open to be receptive to her amazing beauty. There is diversity in the eternally ceaseless rivers and the winding roads amidst the lush greenery wherever we look. There is diversity in ethnicity, culture, language and the arts as well as the celebrations spanning countrywide, spreading happiness and joy among the people.

Along with nature, Bangladesh has an amazing variety of food, clothing and social traditions, not to mention the plethora of seasons that bring with it such multiplicity in flora and fauna with the monsoon rains giving its special variety of song, dance, poetry and festivals. The diversity continues in mosques, temples, churches and take form in enchanting melodies of folk music that include Lalon, Bhatiali, Rakhali and many more.

It is our diversity that gives Bangladesh her unique place among nations. Celebrating Diversity is truly Celebrating Bangladesh.

Since the beginning in 2008, the contest has grown enormously in terms of number of participants, number of entries and it has grown far more diverse. Celebrating Life 2017 will be even bigger, reaching hundreds of thousands of more people.

This year, Celebrating Life will specifically engage youth of Bangladesh at campuses in addition to its regular national competitions. In the spirit of patronizing quality of production over the total number, the organizers have lucrative prize money in all three areas. Over a dozen more will receive ‘Honourable Mention’ awards, along with crests and certificates. Winners will be announced at the Celebrating Life Award Ceremony.
