Students from all schools in Mangaluru and surrounding regions are invited to participate. Spot registrations will be accepted. Each school may send a maximum of ten students from classes 7-9, accompanied by 1-2 teachers. The poster should depict one lesser-known heritage building of the region, such as a fort, palace, place of worship (temple, gurdwara, church, mosque, etc.), old pond, katte, civic building, educational institution or places associated with famous personalities. The poster should be made on A3-sized paper and feature a suitable slogan. It should be accompanied by a write-up of approximately 200 words on A4-sized paper, describing the selected heritage building's history, myths, stories, architecture, present condition, and three steps for its protection and promotion. The write-up and slogan can be in English, Hindi, or any major regional language.

Participants must create the poster and write-up at the venue. The programme will last approximately three hours, with 90 minutes allocated for drawing and 30 minutes for writing. Entries will be treated as individual entries; group entries and incomplete entries (without a write-up) will not be accepted. All entries must include the student’s full name, class, school name, and address in block letters.

The organisers will provide the paper for writing and drawing at the venue. Participants must bring their own art materials, including pens, pencils, paints, brush and collage materials. Certificates will be given to all participants, and prizes and trophies will be awarded to 100 regional winners and 10 national winners. Additionally, the 10 national winners will get to undertake a sponsored educational trip, according to Subhas Chandra Basu, convener of the INTACH Mangaluru Chapter.
