The Beauty Of An Oil Palm Plantatio n: Photographers who like to shoot nature will find that oil palm plantations are a treasure trove of wonderful scenery. — LOK SIEW CHOONG
THE Palm Portraits photo essay competition, which closed in May, attracted 583 entries – all creative shots which portrayed anything and everything related to palm oil and its industry, from the fruit and tree to entire plantations and the by-products, as well as everyday uses of palm oil.
The contest, organised by the Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC), aimed to capture the essence of palm oil and raise awareness among the public on the palm oil industry.
A total of 115 entries were shortlisted; the images featured on these pages are the top 10. From these, five winners will be chosen and announced at the Palm Oil Industry Leadership Awards later this month. The prizes are RM5,000, RM3,000 and RM2,000 cash plus photography workshops, and the Judges’ Choice Award and the People’s Choice Award. The winning entries will also be featured in a coffeetable book.
