People of Remarkable Talent (PORT) celebrated the top 15 winners of the Ipoh Mobile Photography competition recently.
According to PORT General Manager, Zamari Muhyi, the third edition of the competition ran on the theme of local cakes as the subject.
The contest conducted from December 15, 2018 to January 15, 2019 received almost 200 pictures from 55 participants.
“The response was encouraging with participation from all races and all walks of life. The theme was chosen, as we want to promote our traditional cakes to the public. It’s also part of our short-term plan to record a traditional song on cakes unique to Perak,” he added.
The competition was also aimed at promoting arts and culture to the community, especially on smartphone photography.
