The ‘Amazing Sarawak Culture’ photography contest at Sarawak Cultural Village

KUCHING: The ‘Amazing Sarawak Culture’ photography contest held at Sarawak Cultural Village (SCV) attracted over 60 shutterbugs on Sunday.

It was organised by SUPP Youth Pending Branch here.

SUPP Youth chief Tan Kai said the event aimed to promote the colourful cultures and lifestyle of Sarawak through the lens.

“It is also to encourage youths to participate in social activities and lead a healthier lifestyle through leisure activities related to their passion,” he said.

“More importantly, it provides youths the opportunity and avenue to gather and share their passion, experience or simply have a weekend outing,” he added.

The contest was divided into two categories: professional and Facebook online vote.

Shutterbugs roamed the village, also known as a living museum, that sprawls across 17 acres to capture their masterpiece.

It was the best place to explore the traditional cultures and heritage of the major ethnic groups in Sarawak including Malay, Chinese, Iban, Melanau and Bidayuh.

Participants can only submit one photo per category captured in the village that truly reflects the diversity of Sarawak culture.
