Jakarta, 20 May 2011

Young artists, including university and graduate students of ASEAN Member States and the Republic of Korea are welcomed to participate in the 2011 ASEAN-Korea Multimedia Competition.

Organised by the ASEAN-Korea Centre, the annual competition aims to provide a channel of exchanges to enhance mutual understanding between the young generation of ASEAN and Korea through new media. Themed ‘Future Image,’ this year’s competition will focus on ASEAN’s contemporary image and suggest a new conformity of its art and culture in this global society.

The ASEAN-Korea Multimedia Competition was launched in 2009 as part of the ASEAN-Korea Centre’s efforts to foster friendship among youths in ASEAN Member States and the Republic of Korea. Last year’s competition received 600 entries. Eleven winners from ASEAN Member States were invited to Seoul for a five-day trip.

More information about the competition is available at www.aseankoreammc.com. Entries can be submitted to the website until Tuesday, 31 May.
