IN CONJUNCTION with Genting Group’s 50th anniversary, Resorts World Genting is organising once again an art competition titled “Genting: 50 Wondrous Years”.
The competition, which runs until Sept 1, hopes to attract young artists aged between 18 and 25 years to use their creativity to come up with pieces centred on the theme “Genting: 50 Wondrous Years”.
The prize-giving ceremony will be held on Oct 9.

“The idea behind this competition is to promote Malaysian artists. We are putting up a platform where up and coming artists can showcase their work through competition.
“And as we celebrate our 50th anniversary this year, we are also inviting top Malaysian artists to join us in exhibiting their work,” said Resorts World Genting Resort Communications and Public Relations vice-president Katherine Chew.
