IDMT.IN Utkal Cartoon World

(ଆଇ ଡି ଏମ୍ ଟି. ଇନ୍ ର ଉତ୍କଳ କାର୍ଟୁନ୍ ୱାର୍ଲ୍ଡ) was launched by the Institute of Digital Media Technology in association with a student Utkal Gaurab Nanda on November 17, 2008. But later on, the Institute found out that the channel was not meeting its core objectives; it had become the personal profile of UGN. Therefore, IDMT launched its own channel called IDMT.IN Utkal Cartoon World on September 24, 2012, for the development, promotion, and advocacy of Odisha’s vibrant Art & Animation Industry. The core objective was to create employment opportunities for the youth of the state in Media, Entertainment & Infotainment Industry.

Today IDMT.IN’s Utkal Cartoon World is popularly known as #IDMT Utkal. IDMT Utkal is a Public Infotainment and Engagement channel to promote various social causes with art, cartoon, and animation.
