The Juree Awards Asia Edition returns to celebrate storytelling excellence and support the discovery and growth of Asian stories on a global stage.

Viddsee, a creator platform, announced the eighth Juree Awards Asia to celebrate the region’s finest storytelling talents. The event aims to discover young and promising talents while supporting and growing creators’ careers on a global scale. The Juree Asia Awards invites all creators from Asia to submit their original short films across all genres from January 1, 2021 onwards.

Sure, I can help you with that. Here is the rewritten text:

The Vertical Storytelling Award is back for its second year, and this time, it is exclusively for creators under the age of 35. Vertical stories are an emerging storytelling format that has become popular among young creators because they provide a captivating narrative for digital audiences. This category will ignite an immersive experience between creators, judges, and audiences through conversations within the vibrant TikTok community.

The Juree Awards will honor the best short films through the Open Category, where two winners will be selected across Asia. Audiences can also participate and cast votes for their favorite stories until November 13, 2023.
