This year, Asian Festival of Children’s Content (AFCC), is featuring Malaysia as the country of focus and it was such an honour for me to be given the chance to illustrate for them. I sent them some of the ready ones from my A to Z: Things that Boys and Girls Like to Do and some new ones illustrated just for the event.
As a children book’s writer and illustrator, I want to be involved in as many events as I can; around the world. This will help me further promote my books and illustrations. I have a very BIG dream; and that’s to be one of world’s renown illustrators in the industry. For this year, I am travelling to Singapore and Abu Dhabi to promote myself.
So what is AFCC is all about? AFCC brings together content creators and producers with parents, teachers, librarians, and anyone interested in quality Asian content for children.
With a mix of professional conferences, masterclasses and workshops, rights fair and media mart, and public events, AFCC is a unique and popular event right here in Asia that provides an opportunity for writers, illustrators, editors, publishers, agents, distributors, parents, children, teachers, and librarians to meet, learn, develop their craft, and discover business opportunities.
The National Book Development Council of Singapore has been organising the highly popular Asian Children’s Writers & Illustrators Conference for the past ten years. Leveraging on its success, the conference was expanded to form AFCC which has emerged as a very popular professional and trade event since 2010.
AFCC impacts 1.5 billion children in Asia as well as their parents, professionals, and businesses involved in their development.
