1. The honorarium amount is assigned based on:
    • the complexity of the topic chosen for animation,
    • curation of the video
    • the contributor’s performance, curation of the video and the final output.
  2. The quality of the final video you submit, the complexity of the topic chosen, the correctness/succinctness of the outline and timely submission are factors that determine the honorarium amount you receive. If the contributor submits the video on time and with a concise outline, he/she may receive an amount of Rs 1000 - Rs 1500 per video.
  3. A quality bonus of Rs 500-1000 per video can be granted if deemed fit by the reviewer.
  4. The final amount is up to the discretion of the moderators.


A contributor can begin with the honorarium process only after submission of the final video and its release on the website.
