We would like to use the opportunity of this milestone to explore what artists and art of tomorrow look like through digital creativity.
Proposals designed to be inclusive will be prioritised. By this we mean projects which celebrate diversity, inclusion, equal opportunity and freedom of expression.

As the world wide web was created to allow for equal access and for people to connect, learn and have more opportunities. Our open call wishes to honour this motto.

Projects can connect broadly to the thematic of the celebration of the creation of the world wide web and address as many of the points below as possible:
- Have artistic creativity, connection, culture and collaboration at their heart.
- Connecting people and providing access to information and conversations through artistic digital experiences – i.e. projects might look at what the artist of tomorrow is; crowd sourced experiences; explore themes such as data collection or privacy; changing communication such as social media and how we interact with one another digitally etc.
- Explore how we can make the web more inclusive through artistic platforms, looking especially at equal economic access or access to digital connectivity for women and girls for example.
- Be intended for an audience primarily in India but with potential to reach beyond.
- Have demonstrable potential to achieve large digital reach and engagement across the web.
- Have a particular emphasis on cross hardware engagement from desktop to smartphone - thus allowing for multiple types of interaction and activity - from accessing the projects in the public space or on the go.
- Promote greater social inclusion and cohesion.
- Respond clearly to the aims and outcomes in the background section below.
In order to be eligible to apply, you must:
- Be based in India or the UK.

Dear Students and Parents,
As you are all aware, the world is currently facing the Covid-19 Health Pandemic of serious proportions, due to which All Universities, Colleges and Schools in India have been temporarily closed down by the Govt. of India.
Our First and Foremost Priority is the safety and security of our students, Faculty and the IAAN Community. In this, we are regularly following all the guidelines issued by the relevant authorities to stop the spread of this Disease and following University Orders; all students have vacated the IAAN Campus.
At the same time, we want to ensure that students do not loose out on the Education and Learning they deserve during this health crisis. IAAN has always taken education very seriously and we want our students to get the best opportunities possible.
Therefore, starting tomorrow, the College will be transitioning to an Online Education System Module under which students will be provided with classes, lectures, assignments and practical training in a digital format.
This will enable students to stay at home and yet complete their education and keep up with Assignments.
For this purpose, we are first taking the IAAN Divisions Online!
All students who have given their names for the different Divisions, IAAN TV, IAAN EXPRESS, IAAN RADIO and IAAN PRODUCTION, have been already selected and their names Officially declared on 11.03.2020.
These students will be included in the IAAN Divisions and start their Online Education Module from tomorrow itself. All the details of their work and how they should proceed further will be explained in the respective Division Official WhatsApp Group.
Depending upon the response and participation we get from students to the Online Division Modules, we will start implementing University Classes in a digital format soon.
We have taken all the relevant permissions from the Concerned Authorities over the past few days.
We hope that students will participate in this whole-heartedly and we request Parents to ensure that the students are keeping up with the assignments given to students digitally.

IAAN EDUCATION - The Way Forward 17.04.2020
IAAN EDUCATION - The Way Forward
Dear Students and Faculty,
In the times of Coronavirus IAAN has been working at full-capacity to ensure that we are able to continue student education in the right way.
For this, we are in constant communication with the HRD Ministry and Makhanlal University since March 2020, even before the Lockdown was implemented.
Some Important Steps we have taken so far are:
1. Starting in February, we had started holding College Meetings on Covid-19 informing students and giving them the Proper Guidance.
2. In February end itself, a month before the Lockdown, we reached out to the HRD Ministry for Directions on how to proceed forward in terms of College Education.
3. In early March, due to Delhi Riots, College shifted its priority to ensuring safety of all students and IAAN Community and then launched a healing photography series titled -- Capturing Harmony - to spread the message of love instead of hate. We are extremely proud of the work our students did in making this beautiful Photo Series.
4. Colleges and schools in Delhi were closed on 12 March under directions by the Delhi Govt. due to Covid-19. On 18 March 2020, IAAN Launched Online Education Modules starting with IAAN Divisions. We waited a few days until students reached their homes safely.
THAT IS, EVEN BEFORE THE JANATA CURFEW AND LOCKDOWN WAS ANNOUNCED, WE HAD SHIFTED TO ONLINE EDUCATION
5. On 4th April, after reviewing the success of the Online Module and getting all necessary permissions, IAAN Started Online Theory Classes for students.
It is important to note that the Online Theory Courses do not end in April. They Continue onto May 2020. Therefore on 4th April, students had an academic chart till May end.
Now, after the Lockdown has been extended till 3rd May 2020, we have more important information.
A. The HRD Ministry will be making important announcements in the coming time. We will wait for those decisions to be made public before giving detailed instructions to students on how to proceed further.
B. All Online Courses that we have given you under Online Education Modules, have both Youtube Interactive videos and e-text books along with live assignments and real time teacher guidance available.
C. On 20th April, much of the country will re-opening. IAAN will be launching new education initiatives after 20th April
We are waiting until then as all the Districts in the Country are undergoing review as announced by Honourable Prime Minister in his National Address on 14 April. Currently it will be premature to make announcements before the ground situation is finalised.
As this is an infectious disease, much can change over the next 2-3 days.
We currently ask all students and faculty for their cooperation and reiterate to students that they should do the courses online and the Division Assignments.

National Education Policy Released 29.07.2020
National Education Policy 2020
After 34 long years, India now has a new National Education Policy! The College welcomes NEP 2020 and is proud to have been a part of this journey.
As an Institution, we have been gearing up for this Policy change since 2019 and it is heartening to see that our ethos of Practical Education has been implemented on a national level now, with more and more focus going towards Practical skills training, which is a hallmark of IAAN’s Education. We are delighted that new specialised domains of Artificial Intelligence and New Media Technologies have been incorporated in NEP 2020. IAAN has been teaching Artificial Intelligence to students since 2017, full three years ahead of the National Education Policy!! We had also started work with students (specially first years) on the New Media Technology Modules (such as Uber Helicopter - New Urban Transport System) in February 2020 but that was interrupted due to Covid-19. We will resume this Module as soon as the College physically re-opens.
IAAN is all set for a new chapter in India’s Education to begin. And this upcoming Semester will be an amazing one, for now we can innovate like never before.
New Course - Digital Media Technology Introduced 01.08.2020
Digital Media Technology
The College is excited to announce that under the New National Education Policy 2020, greater flexibility and innovation is permitted in Higher Education Institutions.
Therefore, starting with the New Academic Session 2020, College will be Officially Introducing a New Course Module —
1. Digital Media Technology
This Module will focus on evolving Digital Technologies of the 4th Industrial Revolution that will transform key sectors in India by 2025, namely:
¤ Urban Transportation ¤ Tele-Medicine ¤ Smart Homes
Case Study - Uber Helicopters Virtual Linking Robotics
Our aim through this course will be to make you understand in depth, the changes taking place in these key sectors of National Importance with sound knowledge, so that by the time you graduate in the future years, you can easily communicate the changes to the public (audience).
We strongly believe that the duty of Media is to first understand the changes underway in the world and then accurately, in a simple manner communicate it to the public.

Open Book Examinations
PGD II and UGD II
As you are aware, the Honorable Supreme Court has in its judgement dated 28.08.2020 declared that examinations are mandatory for Final Semester Students. Following UGC Guidelines, the College has been preparing for examinations for some time now, and after the clear decision, we are announcing Examinations for Diploma batches. Due to Covid-19, this year’s examinations will be flexible and different from the standard examinations as a 1 time special measure.
The Guidelines for Final Semester Diploma Examinations are as follows:
1. The Examinations will be Online. No student of PGD II or UGD II will have to come to the College for the Exams.
2. Exams will be held towards the end of September 2020 giving all Diploma students ample time to prepare and revise their syllabus. Exam timetable will be released in the coming days.
3. The Exam Format will be Open Book
Meaning, the Examination Paper will be given to you, and you can refer to the internet, google, books and your class notes to answer the questions.
After a set time, each student will be responsible for sending his or her answer sheets through online means only. Examination duration will be declared with the exam timetable in the coming days.
4. E-mail and WhatsApp will be the Designated medium for Exams
Question Papers will be sent via both e-mail and whatsapp to students. The students can submit their answer sheets within the time allotted on either e-mail or on an Official Whatsapp Number which will be provided separately.
This will solve the connectivity issues students residing in low network areas are facing.
Please Note - WhatsApp is being used in an exceptional case as an examination medium, after thoroughly analyzing the experience of Delhi University Students in the recently held DU Open Book Exams. We do not want any student to suffer due to lack of internet connectivity. Since each student of the Diploma batches (PGD II and UGD II) is on the College Official WhatsApp Group since the time of their admission, this is a reliable, tested and trusted medium of communication. Putting all students on an equal footing.
5. Examinations will be in both English and Hindi. Students can also write their answers in either English or Hindi
6. Students can physically write their answers on sheets of paper and send us scanned copies or good quality photographs of their answer sheets. This will be allowed.
Or students can type their answers on whatsapp and send 1 single message containing all the answers to the designated whatsapp number with their name and batch.
Or students can email us the answer sheets in .dox or .pdf formats.
Please Note - This measure will help solve the problem of such students who do not have a laptop or computer at home. And rely solely on their mobile phones.
7. In view of the mental stress and unprecedented situation that students are under due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, Flood Situation in home states and state or district level Lockdowns —10% Grace Marks will be given to each student.
8. All Online Classes that were held during this semester have already been uploaded on YouTube and are accessible on the IAAN TV YouTube Page. Students can refer to them as an important revision tool.
9. Examination Fee of Rs. 750/- is applicable for each student as per rules and regulations. Students can submit the exam fees directly to the College through online payment methods.
10. Students will have the option to take Revaluation Exams on a later date, physically in the College Campus once the pandemic situation normalizes, if they are dissatisfied with the Marks they obtain in the Open Book Examinations.
We hope these measures will ensure a just and equal examination setting for all students.
We have reached the above guidelines after thoroughly considering all options. The Guidelines have been formulated keeping the best interests of students in mind, while at the same time maintaining Academic Integrity.
