SHANGHAI, June 8 (Xinhua) -- Shanghai Disney Resort Friday announced plans to launch an imaginations design competition this summer to seek creative talent.

The upcoming activity, known as Disney Imaginations Shanghai Design Competition, is inspired by the Walt Disney Imagineerings Imaginations Design Competition. It aims to find and nurture the next generation of dreamers and doers.

Students from five Shanghai universities, including Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai Theatre Academy, East China University of Science and Technology, will be invited to participate in the competition.

Shanghai Disney Resort said it hopes the competition will inspire creativity and innovation in college students.

The winning team will be offered a learning experience at Walt Disney Imagineering in Glendale, California, fully sponsored by Shanghai Disney Resort, as well as an internship at Shanghai Disney Resort, said the organizer.

First started in 1991 by Disney Legend and Imagineering executives, the annual Imaginations Design Competition inspired Hong Kong Disneyland Resort to launch the Disney Imaginations Hong Kong in 2011.

Shanghai Disney Resort, which opened in 2016, is the first Disney resort destination on the Chinese mainland and the sixth in the world.

Disney's Imagineers from all over the world were responsible for developing, designing, and creating Shanghai Disney Resort, including its newly opened Disney Pixar Toy Story Land.
