ArtAsiaPacific’s Young Writers Contest is back again! Entries will be judged by our editors, and writers will have the chance to be published in the magazine’s pages, as well as receive valuable feedback from established experts in the field.  

GUIDELINES

This year, we are inviting young writers from across the globe to write a 800-word essay on one of the following topics: 

A) Memes as Political Art 
B) Art and the Environment 

Your essay should discuss at least three artworks and should be contextualized within ArtAsiaPacific’s region of coverage: Asia, the Pacific and the Middle East. Failure to comply to these rules, and instances of plagiarism and defamation, will result in disqualification.

Judges will be looking for essays written in a fluid, engaged style with strong critical arguments, and that demonstrate clarity and knowledge of the chosen topic.
