Q. Why did you choose an online platform for this competition? Any specific reason?

A. Online platform helps us to reach out to more people and it’s an affordable way for us to organize an event of this kind. Also, we wanted to promote Nepali startups such as Lishn.com which is trying to help Nepali music artists. So, we thought online platform would be really good to get the attention we wanted.
