What are we looking for?
With the theme, Building a Shared Southeast Asian Identity, SEAMEO INNOTECH will select photos that will depict a shared Southeast Asian identity for the three categories: Culture, Politics, and Economy.

Images may highlight commonalities within the region, forms of linkages, and/or differences.
