2008 APEC ICT Poster Competition
Organized as the first event of the project, 2008 APEC ICT Poster Competition highlights the educational outreach effort of the project. With the theme of “ICT for Hope,” the event will provide interested citizens of all twenty-one APEC member economies an opening to convey their thoughts about how we can use ICT to better our lives, while preventing and curtailing the negative side effects that may accompany the rapid advancement of ICT.
The event will accept entries until May 12, 2008. A total of USD $18,000 will be awarded to thirty-seven winners across the Asia Pacific, including one Grand Prize winner, who will receive a cash prize of $5,000. Winning posters will be exhibited in APEC member economies during the second half of the year, including the 2008 APEC host Peru.
In order to maximize the educational impact of the event, local promotions led by interested organizations, institutions, government departments as well as schools and individual practitioners in the member economies will be greatly appreciated. Promotional materials will be provided in seven languages including English, Spanish, Chinese, Indonesian, Korean, Thai, and Vietnamese and will be distributed to partner orgnizations.
