As previously mentioned here, I participated in the photography contest hosted by Petronas. There are six categories and you may submit as many photos as you like in more than one category. In this post I will be talking about my photo submission and the theme “Reimagining energy”.
The photo I submitted can be seen below:
This photo was taken with friends of different races; symbolizing the 'muhibbah' feeling & the spirit of unity.
In my perspective, the theme "Reimagining energy" means understanding a certain form and not just looking at it from the outside. Chinese New Year is a celebration about being together with close ones as well as having fun during the festive season. Energy is often filled in the air due to happiness and laughter from one another. As a human we observe and occasionally try to preserve the energy using our minds. As people get busier with their own life, this energy is lost and people will tend to forget their culture and tradition.
In case you're interested in participating in this photography contest, you have all the way until the 12th of February. Who knows? You might just win yourself a big prize from Petronas. For more details, click here.
