       Ability Foundation, a Chennai based cross-disability NGO has, for the past twelve years, been working towards mainstreaming disabled people. Its major activities include publishing a magazine, training qualified disabled people for jobs, placing them in suitable workplaces, running a weekly radio programme, holding workshops and seminars and emphasising the need to recognise human rights. In its constant efforts to make the society more equitable and disabled-friendly, Ability Foundation hosts a number of public programmes which aim to sensitise people on issues of disability.
This year Ability Foundation is holding its very successful one-minute film competition, the first edition of which was held in 2005. The competition is open to all people of Indian nationality.  Prizes amount to Rs. 2.25 lakh rupees. Participants are required to submit an original film on the theme “Celebrating Diversity” and the winners will be selected by a panel of eminent jurors. The last date for submission is August 16, 2007. This competition is part of AbilityFest2007, the India International Disability Film Festival which will be held in Chennai in October.
