About the Sentinels of Time Photography Competition
The Sentinels of Time photography competition is a contest that asks participants to capture digital images of majestic landscapes in urban and rural areas of Malaysia. The idea is to get as many people as possible to record, document, and describe these locations through photos. Because the preservation of Malaysia’s natural beauty is so important, the competition doubles as a platform to enhance the awareness of the need to conserve, protect, and maintain urban and natural landscapes in Malaysia.
EcoKnights is a not-for-profit environmental organization with the Malaysian Registrar of Societies. Founded in 2005 by Yasmin Rasyid, the organization focuses on community based environmental education and awareness projects that help Malaysians to understand and deal with environmental issues that affect them. EcoKnights offers a variety of programs for the community including the Sentinels of Time photography competition, Knights of Nature Sustainability Camp, Anugerah Hijau youth competition, and the Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival (KLEFF), which is now in its 7th year.
