“Media and Entertainment is growing at an exponential rate and the millennials of India who want to present their talent and skills on a world stage must register and participate in IndiaSkills 2020," said Mohit Soni, CEO, Media and Entertainment Skill Council (MESC).

"The aim is to create awareness and participation across various skills and help Indian youth to attain world-class standards of competence, excellence, and productivity," he added.

The potential competitors needs to register through a national online portal to participate in IndiaSkills Competitions. The selection will be conducted by state government with support from Sector Skill Councils and the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC).
