Bangalore, Aug. 16. The Salesian province of Bangalore, under the leadership of Fr. Gilbert Choondal, the coordinator of the Commission for Communication of Salesian Province of Bangalore, has announced a Faith-Photo Contest from the Catholic youth of India, in order to bring out the Indian version of Youcat, the best seller in the Catholic World after the Holy Bible. The contest is to inculturate the present Youcat into Indian edition with Indian faces.
''The contest is open to any Catholic Youth of India. The photos of the original Youcat were contributed by Catholic youth. Hence, we want to keep the same tradition by requesting the Indian Catholic Youth to contribute with their innovative faith photos.'' said, Fr. Gilbert, the coordinator of the Indian Youcat Faith-Photo Contest.

''Photos communicate. Faith can be communicated through visual images. In this Year of Faith, Youcat plays a significant role in the faith formation of the young,'' continued Fr. Gilbert.

The Asian edition of Youcat is published by a Bangalore based publishing house, Asian Trading Corporation. Mr. Nigel, the owner of ATC has entrusted the Salesians of the Bangalore Province with this project of Indian edition of Youcat.

The last date for submitting the photos is 30 September 2013.
