The International Monetary Fund (IMF) launched its second photo contest on Instagram on June 19, to capture how ASEAN countries are empowering women in the economy and using technology to improve the job prospects of young people.

The contest is open to photographers aged 18-35 from ASEAN countries, with submissions accepted from June 18 to August 19.

Images must be original and taken personally by the photographer, be not previously published, and showcase how their country is empowering women in the economy and using technology to create jobs for young people. Entrants can submit as many photos as they wish. The selection will be based on originality, technical excellence, and artistic merit. Two winners will be announced after September 1 on www.voyagetoindonesia.com.

Winners will receive a three-day trip to Bali to attend the IMF's Annual Meetings in Bali on October 10-14.

The Annual Meetings are an opportunity for Indonesia and Asia to reaffirm their importance and influence on the global stage. Indonesia is an emerging powerhouse in Asia, with increasing global influence as one of the next largest emerging markets in the world.

The 2018 Annual Meetings will bring together central bankers, ministers of finance, academics, private sector executives, parliamentarians, civil society organization (CSO) representatives, and journalists. The various events give participants the opportunity to discuss issues of global concern, including the economic outlook, financial stability, jobs and growth, poverty eradication, development, and aid effectiveness.
