A PSPA spokesperson said the theme for the competition is “Climate Change and Us” and there were two categories --- public and students.
“We hope participants can use this time during the Covid-19 pandemic to be inspired and reflect on what we can do to be more self-conscious of our actions or inactions that will have consequential effects on Mother Nature, ” said the spokesperson said in a statement.
“The first prize in the public category is RM3,000 while the first and second runners-up will received RM2,000 and RM1,000 respectively.
“In the student category, the first prize is RM1,000 plus free entry to a PSPA workshop.
