For more than two decades, Daekyo has been discovering new breeds of writers and literary talents through the annual Eye Level Literary Award. In recent years, the contest’s focus has shifted to uncovering and recognizing talented children from around the world.
Eye Level members and non-members are all invited to showcase their creativity and take a step closer to their dreams.
