The "Sentinels of Time: Majestic Trees of Selangor" digital photography competition ended on August 30th 2012. We have received close to 400 submissions and were slightly overwhelmed by the amazing and enthusiastic responses from the general public. No doubt selecting the top twelve images was difficult.
The mission of this competition is to create visual tools to increase awareness on the need to preserve the forests, promote sustainable practices, an environmental culture and the participation of all the sectors of society for the benefit of humankind and the environment that surrounds us.
In order to achieve this, these specially selected twelve images will tell stories of majestic trees that dwell in the state of Selangor. These stories along with the images will also attempt to travel to venues that are willing to host the exhibition of "The Majestic Trees of Selangor".
So here are the top twelve images for the competition.
Congratulations to the top twelve photographers. We will be notifying all of you soon
Nine of the twelve participants will receive a RM300 CASH prize, certificate and a trophy, while the top three winners will nab RM5,000, RM3,000 and RM2,000 CASH prize each, along with a one year free subscription to local health magazine, Natural Health, a hamper and a certificate.
The first exhibition of the top twelve images will be held at the foyer of the Experimental Theatre, University Malaya from Oct 12th to Oct 14th, 2011, in conjunction with the 5th Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival.
Winners will be announced at the Festival.
