The ASEAN-Korea Centre is organizing the ‘2012 ASEAN-Korea Multimedia Competition’ for university students and young artists under the age of 30 in both ASEAN Member States and Korea. Entering its fourth year, the Competition aims to provide a channel for cultural exchanges and enhance mutual understanding between the young generations of ASEAN and Korea through new media.

Under the theme, “Show Yourself: ASEAN Self-Portrait, Korean Self-Portrait”, this year’s competition will illustrate the diverse interests of youths through contemporary mixed-media arts. With the underlying idea of ‘self-portraits,’ the Competition hopes to present a new conformity of art and culture through the day-to-day realities of ASEAN/Korean youth, capturing the diversity and uniqueness of ASEAN/Korean fashion, cuisine, and architecture.

The 2012 ASEAN-Korea Multimedia Competition, composed of two categories: photography and digital media arts, receives submissions from 9 July until 24 September, 2012. Along with a prize, ten selected winners residing in ASEAN Member States will be invited to Seoul for the Opening Ceremony & Exhibition. More information on the Competition is available at

The 2012 ASEAN-Korea Multimedia Competition is supported by the ASEAN Secretariat, ASEAN-Committee on Culture and Information (COCI), and ASEAN University Network (AUN).

The ASEAN-Korea Centre is an intergovernmental organization aiming to increase trade volume, accelerate investment flow, invigorate tourism and enrich cultural exchanges between the ASEAN Member States and the ROK.
