Project Updates


18 Sep 2015

Between 7 July and 13 September 2015, ASEF invited photographers to participate in On the Go, a photo competition celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM). On the Go’s theme is the motion and the pace of life in Asia and Europe, illustrating the moments where we are different — and yet, so alike.

Photographers from 50 countries submitted over 1,500 entries capturing on-the-go scenes from Asia and Europe, reminding us that we can have similar visions but unique means of achieving them. The photo submissions are currently being evaluated by the jury panel. The full gallery of all entries can be viewed here. The photos are open for voting by 30 September 2015. The results will be announced in early October 2015.

An exhibition will be held of all awarded works and a further selection of 20 entries. The exhibition opening will be organised in conjunction with the 12th ASEM Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (ASEM FMM12) on 4 November 2015 in Luxembourg. It will then go on tour across Asia and Europe. The first stops will be Singapore, followed by Belgium and Mongolia.

Thank you for your interest and for participating in the contest!
