Through this initiative for the ADB NGO Center, ASSIST hopes to educate, alert, and more importantly, inspire people to act.
Anyone who is a citizen of any one of ADB's 67 members* can join. Over $3000 worth of prizes are at stake for the winners, which will be chosen based on the following criteria: Substance, impact and creativity: 50%; and Composition, clarity and technical quality: 50%. The deadline of submission is April 15, 2012.

An awarding ceremony will be held on the first week of May, 2012. Following the selection of winners, the photographs will be exhibited in various locations to promote awareness on the competition’s theme.
