I would like to take this opportunity to introduce to you Asian Festival of Children's Content (AFCC). I work with the National Book Development Council of Singapore (NBDCS or Book Council in short) - a nonprofit charitable organisation set up in 1969 and we are organising the first Asian Festival of Children's Content (AFCC) from 6 to 9 May 2010. We are expecting about 300 to 400 delegates from all over Asia, Australia and New Zealand, North America and Europe to attend the event.

NBDCS has been organising the Asian Children's Writers & Illustrators Conference (ACWIC) for the past 10 years and this time will take the lead and launch the inaugural AFCC. The conference will feature new programmes, including the Asian Children's Media Market, Children's Book Award, Children's Writers Award as well as workshops and master classes.

The goals of the Asian Festival of Children's Content are to:
· Develop the writing and the illustrating of Children's stories and content.
· Promote publishing of Asian content.
· Provide the world with access to such material created in Asia.

We hope we would be able to get your support on this by helping to promote AFCC on your website / blog or perhaps put a link to it. The link is:
