Projects could include an art piece, music, a short film or documentary, a podcast, poetry or other creative project in any medium that broadens the representation of Asian American lived experiences in the fields of media and art. In addition to the $500 award, students will be paired with an alumni mentor and have guidance from Tsai CITY and AACC in the development of their project. Teams will be judged on the following criteria:- Is your idea innovative? We define innovative as “exploring, understanding, & challenging existing systems so as to imagine what could be”- Does your idea center, celebrate, and support underrepresented voices?- Does your idea address the issue of the lack of accurate Asian American representation in mainstream media?- Is your project accessible to a wide audience? Applications will be judged by a panel of alumni, and are due 11.59 on November 1st. Winning projects will be debuted as part of Pan Asian American Month on March 28th, 2019.
