The Mitsubishi Public Affairs Committee has supported the Festivals of Asian Children's Art. The festival is being organised since 1990 in support of the literary campaign by Mitsubishi Public Affairs Committee in collaboration with Asian Pacific Federation of UNESCO Clubs and Association (AFUCA) and National Federation of UNESCO Association in Japan (NFUAJ) for the children in Asian countries. The festivals bring together illustrated diaries by children throughout Asia, aged 6 to 12, and present the works at exhibitions in Japan and elsewhere. Mitsubishi Asian Children’s Enikki Festa, Japan conducted the Mitsubishi Japan Art Competition. The organizers have shown the amazing works, drawn by children from diverse nations, regions and cultures in exhibitions held in Japan and other nations.

24 Asian nations and a total of 65,101 entries, including 6,503 from India, participated in the competition. The international screening committee met on 2nd April 2009 in Tokyo to select the best entries.

The colorful, vivid drawings show the culture and customs in their countries and some of the drawings reflect ever changing environmental and social issues. This is our children’s vision of the current status of the world. Two students of Platinum Jubilee High School, Warangal won awards at the international platform. Ms. Kandagatla Sharvani of class 8 won the International Excellence Award for excellent performance and Raja Sharath Chandra of class 6 won the Cucai National Award.
