Popcon is short for “Popular Culture Convention”. It is an event to celebrate creative industry such as comic, movie, animation, games and designer toys. Even though it says “Asia” on the name, based on my observation, the participants are mostly local Indonesian Artist. Nevertheless, the amount of artwork that exist in that place makes it definitely worth the visit.
Last week there was this awesome event happens in my city. It’s the annual Toys & Comic Fair :D. first of all, let’s not start on comparing this event with those convention held in San Diego or Singapore…but here, this one is considered as the biggest Toys Fair held in Indonesia. It was my first time attending this event, I only used to attend the Year End Toys Attack and it was not as big as the one held this March.
I would like to do some sort of field report on the event that I have recently joined, the Munny World Festival Indonesia 2011. It was opened in 9th December 2011 and closed tonight, 11th December 2011. The highlight of the event was on 10th December 2011 though..the day they held the Munny On-the-Spot Competition and winner announcement.
I’m gonna divide the coverage into 3 posts, the Munny Competition Showcase, On-The-Spot Competition, and Toys Exhibition. Each post contains tons of photos because I took photos of almost every entry on that event So let’s start, first coverage: Munny Competition Showcase!
The Munny Competition Showcase is the main event in MWFI 2011. The showcase was held in Plastic Culture. Plastic Culture is the biggest designer toy store in Indonesia. The V4 Munny that is used for the competition is available here for IDR 350.000. Think of it as a registration fee. Expensive? maybe, but once you manage to submit the Munny before the deadline, you’ll receive an invitation to join the Munny On-the-Spot Copetition, which means: Mini Munny for free ^^
I would like to inform you that there’s gonna be a really cool event on 9th-11th December 2011. It is called the Munny World Festival Indonesia 2011 (MWFI 2011 for short). If you happen to be in Jakarta at that date, the event takes place in Plastic Culture, Grand Indonesia.
