The Tamil competitions have been held for the last twenty years in New South Wales and 8 years in other states and territories of Australia and New Zealand. The Australian Society of Graduate Tamils had taken over this Herculean task from the 10th year. This competition is now extended to all States in Australia and New Zealand from 2006, as `Australasian Competitions'.

The competition commences at the State Level. The top three candidates of each state are invited to participate at the National Level. Prizes and Certificates will be issued for the winners at both levels. The National Level competitions prizes comprise a number of gold medals as the 1st Prize and many more other items.

This competition has helped to produce and identify many talented Tamil youths. TC brought them to spotlight in our community. Some of these youths now show their leadership skills to our wider community. The TC is the only competition, which is designed for Tamil youth to participate in State level and national level. Our aim is to encourage our younger generation to learn, write & talk our language and to live as Tamils in our adopted countries, which we call our `new home'.
