TOP TWELVE

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE TOP TWELVE IMAGES OF MAJESTIC TREES IN SELANGOR!

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

Majestic trees are not only found in forests! The Rain Tree, Samanea saman, is a grand tree that can easily be grown in the confines of a city. Its extensive branches and lush canopy provide much needed respite from the heat and sun, while supplying clean air and regulating temperature. In this picture, the buildings are framed by trees, suggesting the supreme importance of nature and green spaces, even in the built environment of the city.
