The Avatar art of the first-place finisher will be featured on the mobile box packaging of the upcoming gaming-centric POVA smartphone. TECNO would also provide the winner with attractive prizes.

Commenting on the newly-formed partnership, Arijeet Talapatra, CEO, TECNO Mobile, said,

We are a consumer-centric brand and partnering with IIT provides us with a unique experiential platform to engage with our consumers at a deeper level. We are a young brand focused on the youth of India. We understand the importance of ‘breaking free’ from our daily routine not just to escape from monotony but to experience new things in life as well.

This thought is a part of our very identity as a brand. We have always been closely connected with our consumers, most of whom are Gen-Zs. We are looking forward to a fruitful venture with the prestigious academic institution, and we are certain that it will be extremely beneficial for the all participants and other stakeholders.
