123RF On-The-Go Celebrates Holi Day


(IMPORTANT NOTE: Contest Extended For 7 More Days Till 29 March 2014, SUBMIT now and WIN!)

March marks the beginning of Spring, when cold weather melts under the warm sunlight and barren fields fill with harvest and blooming flowers. It’s also this month that Indians all over the globe don their best garbs and revel in the Holi festival – aptly named the Spring Festival – or the festival of colors (and love, wink wink).

Widely known as the festival of hope and joy, Holi is celebrated with much fervor. Trust me, when the Indians party, it goes on day and night, starting with a Holika bonfire the night before followed by a continuous stream of playing and spraying colors of dry powder or gulaal at each other.

While you are taking a refreshing drink of the popular Holi beverage “bhang” amidst the color throwing madness, do whip out your plastic-wrapped mobile and snap your most creative representation of this festival. Need some inspiration? Check out this specially compiled likebox with the colors thrown in the mix! Doesn’t matter if you’re in India or anywhere else in the world, join us for the 123RF On-The-Go Contest!

Joining us for the first time? Get a head-start and familiarize yourself with the 123RF OTG app. Just install the app, get your member account approved (it’s FREE!), and swing into some Holi action! Watch out for that water balloon, you just might get REAL wet!
