After receiving scoring from three external judges that are: Reda Gaudiamo (writer), Kristin Samah (writer), and Indra Dwi Prasetya (ID Next Leader), on September 11th, the best articles selected for the IDEAS Writing Challenge were announced through VDMI social media. Congratulations to all of the chosen writers. For other VDMI alumni and grantees that did not have a chance to participate in the 1st phase of the IDEAS writing challenges are highly encouraged to join the 2nd phase. This time, the IDEAS committee does not only receive articles. The participants are also encouraged to submit Video-Blogs (Vlog).
If intended to submit articles, the criteria of the submitted articles are similar to the previous one (minimum 800 words). Meanwhile, the video should be a minimum of 3 minutes. Inspiration, Digitalization, Education, Art and Culture, and Science (IDEAS) will continuously become topics that can be chosen for the submissions. Furthermore, the medium for submission is the participants’ Excellent Writing Club (EWC) account. Thus, if VDMI alumni or grantees do not have an EWC account should request an account by emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org stating their request as well as their full name, university, and status (alumni/grantee). For more information about the opening of the program, the criteria of submissions, as well as the due date will be announced in VDMI social media. So, stay updated!
