About the Asian Festival of Children's Content
The Asian Festival of Children's Content (AFCC) is a one-of-a-kind festival that aims to promote and celebrate the creation, development, and appreciation of quality Asian content for children. The Singapore Book Council has been organising the Asian Children's Writers and Illustrators Conference since 2000.
Leveraging on the success of this conference. it has since expanded to become a premier regional event that brings together esteemed local and international talents including writers, illustrators, editors, publishers, distributors, as well as parents and children.
Now in its 9th year running, the SBC is committed to expanding AFCC to boost its capacity, outreach and overall impact. At its maximum potential, AFCC can influence and impact the educational growth and development of approximately two billion children in Asia.
