    Video Competition: How to Celebrate Asian New Year

    February 10, 2021

    We are taking a creative approach to celebrate Asian New Year this year, given the conditions of Covid-19. Asian Studies and the Department of World Languages and Cultures are co-sponsoring a Student Video Competition on "How to Celebrate Asian New Year." The competition comes with cash prizes: the 1st place ($75 Amazon e-gift card), 2nd place ($50 e-card), and "most liked" ($35 e-card) awards.

    We encourage students to submit creative videos (no longer than 5 minutes) that showcase how New Year is celebrated in Asian countries, for example, in China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, Taiwan, Vietnam, etc.

    The evaluation criteria are: cultural contents, liveliness, creativity and originality.

    The deadline for video submissions is Feb. 13, 11:59 p.m. More details about what to do, where to submit, how to submit and terms/conditions, can be found on the flyer.


    Finalists and winners will be announced on the Event Day, Feb. 25, 7:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Student finalists will share their video-making ideas/inspirations and present their videos at the Feb. 25 event time.
