Myanmar student wins Asean arts competition – The Nation

Aye Myat Thandar Aung, the second-year student of the National University of Arts and Culture, is named the first-prize winner of the Asean Youth Competition on Arts and Human Rights held this month in Indonesia.

With her watercolour painting titled « Equality and Peace for Everyone », the 20-year student beat other pieces belonging to Asean youth from other seven countries aged 18 to 25 years old.

At the award presentation ceremony held in Jakarta on Monday, she took home the US$2,000 prize money. She is not yet available for an interview.

« We held an art contest within our university first before entering the competition, » said Thit Lwin Soe, head of department of the National University of Arts and Culture (Yangon).

A panel of judges comprising officials from Myanmar Traditional Arts and Artisans Organisation, teachers from the National University of Arts and Culture, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs selected Aye Myat Thandar Aung’s painting titled « Equality and Peace for Everyone » for the Asean Youth Competition. This was the first time Myanmar participated in the competition.
