Asia-Europe Short Film Contest is open for submissions from now until April 9, for a citizen of any of the 46 ASEM countries, between the ages of 18 and 35.

The contest is being organised by the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF), in partnership with NYU Tisch School of Arts-Asia and the National Library Board of Singapore.

Participants can upload their short films by registering on the website: by April 9.

Jury members will shortlist the finalists to choose four winners.

An additional winning film will be chosen by the public via online voting.

Winners will each receive a paid trip to Singapore, including three nights in a hotel, to receive their award and to attend a two-day international filmmaking workshop at the NYU Tisch School of Arts-Asia in Singapore.

The winner of the first prize in the contest will also receive a cash prize of SGD5000.

All submitted short films will be screened for the international public in Asia and Europe at different ASEF events.
