DigiCon6 Asia Malaysia – the Asia’s supreme short movie contest – is back for the 17th edition, offering the chance for the Grand Prize winner to win a trip to Japan to represent Malaysia at the 17th DigiCon6 Asia and compete with the best entries received from all over the region.
The yearly competition aims to search for new ideas across Asia and to showcase them to potential buyers and collaborators worldwide. It is hosted by Tokyo Broadcasting System (TBS) especially for Asia in collaboration with the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) as a territorial partner in Malaysia.
This competition also acts as a means to reward digital content creators for their outstanding works. Moreover, DigiCon6 provides these content creators with opportunities to expand their creative ground by supporting their inventive minds and activities year-round.
More than 5 entries from two categories, Animation (computer-graphics animation, stop-motion/clay animation) and Live-action/VFX (films shot/edited using digital movie equipment) will be forwarded to DigiCon6 Asia Award competition.
“Animation is all about exposure, hence I strongly encourage local content creators to take part in DigiCon6 as it is the perfect platform to give us the right exposure for our content internationally” said Ahmad Ghazi Maslan from Gancho Studios, the 16th DigiCon6 Asia Malaysia winner with his animation, Kertaz.
A total of 10 countries will be participating in the competition such as Japan, Malaysia, China, Hong Kong, India, Korea, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. Those who are looking to connect with like-minded creatives across Asia and show their work to a bigger international audience are encouraged to send in their entries soon as the deadline for the contest falls on 15th September 2015.
