The contest aims to reflect the voices and opinions of students and the public on environmental conservation and concerns through art, in addition to encouraging participants to take part in environmental conservation causes.

KUCHING: World Wide Fund for Nature Malaysia (WWF-Malaysia) invites everyone to celebrate the coming Earth Hour through art by participating in their poster-designing contest.

The contest is open to anyone aged 13 years and above who are currently studying or working in Sarawak.

This year’s contest themed ‘Speak Up for Nature’ will run from Feb 15 to Mar 31. Admission to the contest is free.

The contest aims to reflect the voices and opinions of students and the public on environmental conservation and concerns through art, in addition to encouraging participants to take part in environmental conservation causes.

The four categories in this contest are as follows:

•      Category A: 13 to 15 years old (hand drawn or painted artwork)

•      Category B: 16 to 19 years old (hand drawn or painted artwork)

•      Category C: 20 years old and above (hand drawn or painted artwork)

•      Category D: 20 years old and above (digital artwork)

The contest is held in collaboration with the Natural Resources and Environment Board Sarawak (NREB), Angkatan Zaman Mansang (Azam) Sarawak, Trienekens (Sarawak) Sdn Bhd, and Regional Centre of Expertise Education for Sustainable Development Kuching (RCE) under a ‘Youth Green X-Change’ programme.

WWF-Malaysia Sarawak Conservation Programme head Dr Jason Hon said that the Covid-19 pandemic had restricted people mostly to their homes for nearly a year, but they could turn such moments into something creative.

“Small actions like writing or drawing to reflect critical environmental issues can help to spread awareness and lend a hand to Mother Nature.

“As we carry on with the new norm of life, no matter where we are, we can still make a positive difference. We can speak up for nature through inspiring and meaningful actions and bring environmental issues to the authorities’ attention through art,” he said.

It is hoped that the contest will help to provide students and working adults an avenue during this Covid-19 pandemic to channel their creativity, thoughts, and concerns on environmental issues into art.
