Asia Pacific Linguistics Olympiad (APLO) is a regional linguistics olympiad with the aim of escalating attention to language and linguistics in the Asia Pacific region. It is similar to the International Linguistics Olympiad in spirit, and the nature and style of the problems. The APLO began in 2019 and is held in March every year.
The Second APLO was held on September 27, 2020, simultaneously in 6 official countries/regions, and between September 27 and October 26, 2020, in 5 guest countries. You can find the results here and the problems here.
The upcoming APLO will be held in March 2021.

APLO is not a contest where students from different countries physically meet in one place to participate in the competitions. Instead, all contestants will compete in their home country on the same day.
