Let’s Celebrate Earth Hour Through Art: Spreading awareness and positive actions through posters

19 February 2021, Kuching: WWF-Malaysia invites students and adults to celebrate the coming Earth Hour through art.
 
WWF-Malaysia is holding a poster designing contest for anyone aged 13 years and above who are currently studying and working in Sarawak. The contest is held in collaboration with Natural Resources and Environment Board Sarawak (NREB), AZAM Sarawak, Trienekens (Sarawak) Sdn Bhd and Regional Centre of Expertise Education for Sustainable Development Kuching (RCE) under a “Youth Green X-Change” programme.
 
This year’s contest is themed on, ‘Speak Up For Nature’ and it runs from 15 February to 31 March 2021.
The contest aims to reflect the voices and opinions of students and the public on environmental conservation and concerns through art; and encourages participants to take part in environmental conservation causes.

There are four categories in this contest:
1. Category A: 13 to 15 years old (Hand Drawn or Painted Artwork)
2. Category B: 16 to 19 years old (Hand Drawn or Painted Artwork)
3. Category C: 20 years old and above (Hand Drawn or Painted Artwork)
4. Category D: 20 years old and above (Digital Artwork) 

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

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

“Small actions like writing or drawing reflecting 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 authorities’ attention through art,” he said.

Contest admission is free. For more information on prizes, rules and regulations, click here or email your questions to my.swkcomms@wwf.org.my and ygxcswk@gmail.com
