The main purpose of this painting competition is to combine the creations of exceptional Asian artists with IT technology for securing their ownerships and pave way for a new era for Asian arts. We hope to continue this painting competition annually, started from last year (2020). It is with delightful enthusiasm that we conduct this competition in Cambodia, Thailand and Sri Lanka intending the attention and participation of many talented artists in these countries. We hope to extend the joy and excitement of painting arts not only among professional artists but also among primary and secondary school children.

Winners will be awarded with certificates, trophies and financial rewards. Furthermore, selected paintings will be exhibited in online platforms and in art galleries of Japan, facilitating art collectors around the world to procure notable art works. Through this we aspire to bring ingenious Asian artists towards the attention of professional art directors by which we anticipate to open the avenues for these artists to proceed into their expected destinies.
