Young Vietnamese businesspeople working in creative industries are encouraged to join a global competition launched by the British Council.

The Young Creative Entrepreneur Screen/Multimedia Awards will select a national winner who will go on to represent Vietnam in the UK, where they will participate in a week-long tour including two days at the London Cross Media Forum. The event brings together leading multimedia creators, thinkers and practitioners from across the fields of film, television, inter-active media, on-line, mobile, gaming, publishing and live events.

In addition, there will also be a specially curated programme of networking events and master class sessions introducing the competition's winners to UK peers and media experts.

Winners will also have a chance to engage with the UK market and lay the groundwork for future creative business collaboration.

The short-listed candidates will make a 20-minute presentation and attend a 15-minute interview in English with a panel of judges.-VNA
