The ASEAN Character Award was established by the ASEAN-Japan Centre and LLP ASEAN Creative Supporters for the first time this year in order to bring to light content creative capacities possessed by ASEAN member states which are hitherto less known in Japan.
This is going to be an annual contest focusing on characters which have been created by ACN members in animations, games, and merchandising. This event will be organised by the ASEAN-Japan Centre and administered by the LLP ASEAN Creative Supporters.
All characters nominated will be juried by the top-notch experts well versed with the Japanese content business including the chief editors of Japanese leading media.
An award ceremony will be held in September 20, 2014 (tentatively). A number of Japanese content companies will join the ceremony. Afterwards a networking event for business matching between awardees and Japanese companies will follow.
