From its launch in 2006, Busan International Kids&Youth Film Festival celebrated its 13th edition in 2018. As the only international kids film festival in Korea, it provides not only pleasures but a ground for visual arts education. The festival hosts events such as Film Workshop and Seminars for children, Film and Fun, Poster Contest & Exhibition and Kids’ Cine-Playground, attracting huge attention of cineastes from all over the world while achieving recognition as a Kids&Youth-centered film festival.

In every edition, BIKY has made its beautiful official poster by collecting drawings from children with their amazing imagination and wit. It will be remade into a poster in the form of ‘collage’, after artists’ design works with the selected drawings.
From this year, Busan City of Film would like to collaborate on this project with UNESCO Creative Cities of Film. It would be sincerely grateful if your city would happily accept our suggestion. We guess it will be much more effective that each city selects one drawing through your own entry process and then sends the selected drawing to us. All drawings sent from cities of film will be included the official poster for BIKY’s 2019 edition and will be exhibited during BIKY period.
After we get the drawings from cities of film, we will select one winner among 12 cities to give special chance. We will invite the winner to BIKY to participate in BIKY events. If he/she is 10-12 years old(in Korean age), BIKY will select him/her as a Jury in this edition. For the winner’s visit in Busan, we will provide benefits for winner as follows;
-2 round-trip flight ticket (winner, and his/her guardian – parent or teacher)
-Hotel accommodation during their stay in Busan for BIKY
-BIKY ID card & BIKY Package
