The Memory of the World Committee for Asia and the Pacific (MOWCAP) invites nominations for the UNESCO Memory of the World Asia Pacific Regional Register (MOWCAP Register). Nominations should be sent by email to MOWCAPinfo@gmail.com and must be received by 15 June 2022 for assessment in this round.
Before deciding to submit a nomination you need to read the UNESCO Memory of the World Asia Pacific Regional Register Process. This document provides detailed information on all aspects of nomination to the MOWCAP Register and includes a list of the type of documents that may be inadmissible for nomination (section D) and the criteria against which your nomination will be assessed (section E).
A MOWCAP register nomination form has been developed to take account of the revised MOWCAP Register nomination process. Only nominations submitted on this form will be accepted.
Other documents that may be useful as you prepare your nomination are The International General Guidelines of the Memory of the World Programme and the International Memory of the World Register Companion.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need clarification on any aspects of the MOWCAP Register Process or Nomination Form. We will share any general questions and answers on our website if they are considered helpful to other nominators. The person who asked the question will not be identified.
Note: Process and structures for managing the MOWCAP Register Process, as far as possible, parallel those for the International Register. The Register Process has been developed to take account of regional variations and is consistent with but not the same as the register nomination process in section 8 of the General Guidelines of the Memory of the World Programme, which were approved by the UNESCO Executive Board during its 211th session in April 2021.
