‘The Blossom Arts Festival Malaysia Photography Contest 2016’ is organised by the Malaysian Chinese Culture & Arts Consultative Council (MCCA) and co-organised by Selangor & Kuala Lumpur Photographic Society. This photography competition is held in conjunction with the ‘Blossom Arts Festival’ which will be held in June whereby The One Academy is appointed as its official designer.

Also in conjunction with the launch of this competition is a special photography exhibition by former Deputy Education Minister Dato’ Hon Choon Kim, an enthusiastic professional landscape photographer who was awarded the Honorary Fellowship by the Photography Society of Malaysia and the Photography Society of Negeri Sembilan.
The photography exhibition, entitled ‘Searching for Light’, is named after his published photography book depicting stunning picturesque photographs taken during his trips to China including famous locations such as Sichuan, Yunnan, Guangzhou and Fujian. It will be held at Hall 1 & 2, Block M, The One Academy from 20 – 22 January where those interested to participate in the photography competition have a reference point to what MCCA is looking for.
The theme of the contest, which is announced today, is ‘Moderation and Harmony’ where photographers have the opportunity to promote moderation and harmony through their artful phototaking skills.
