The 20th century was an era of visualization, while the 21st century is one of multi-media. People nowadays use more diverse means and more advanced media technologies to express themselves, delivering their own ideas and thoughts.
Visual media have become an important characteristic of modern art.
Along with the evolution of mass media in general, the forms of visual media are constantly changing and adapting. Contemporary young people are now expected to develop ways that ensure deeper and broader communication, interaction, and experience acquisition, and work together to promote the formation of "the community of shared values and destiny".
MEIHODO International Youth Visual Media Festival emerges right in response to this need. The first festival will be held in Fukuoka, Japan.
MEIHODO International Youth Visual Media Festival, jointly organized by MEIHODO Co., Ltd. and Beijing Film Academy, is a communicative platform for young visual media professionals from all over the world. The festival aims to foster the growth of today’s visual media talents, promote global development and education of this art form with the goal of guiding future trends, and attract skillful visual media makers and journalists global wide to this international platform. In this way, we hope to contribute our own effort to the cultivation of a reserve of creative young talents with global visions in this new era of multimedia.
The submissions of current Festival has increased in number to 167 pieces, with 43 more pieces of 2-D Photography. The Festival will reveal the list of the 70 finalists on Oct 30. Please stay tuned.
