January 19, 2009


Come Join The FRIM Photo Contest 2009!

The Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) invites photographers and photo enthusiasts, professionals as well as amateurs, to participate in its Photography Competition this year by submitting photographs depicting the theme, “The Enchanting World of FRIM, Through The Lense”.

The photographs must be taken around the FRIM premises in Kepong between 1 January to 28 February 2009. For free entrance to FRIM, please register in person at the FRIM Corporate Communications Unit (Building D2, located next to the FRIM Library) from 8am to 5pm (Monday to Friday) and at the FRIM One Stop Centre (D6) from 9am to 4pm (during weekends or public holidays).

The objective of the competition is to enhance environmental awareness and forest appreciation, as well as to promote FRIM, not only as a leading institute contributing to forest conservation in the region, but also as an important tourism site in the country.

FRIM has long been in the lead in efforts to conserve and protect forests resources, through its various research and development activities, advisory role to the government as well as through its training and environmental education programmes.

The photography competition will help to draw public attention to the importance of forests and the natural environment to our general health and well-being, and to strengthen support for conservation efforts.

There are two categories of participants: Students (for those aged 13-17) and Open (above 17), and the competition is also open to foreign nationals residing in the country. The deadline for submission of entries is on 28 February, before 5pm.

Each participant is allowed a maximum of 10 photographs, submitted by post or hand-delivered to “Urusetia Pertandingan Fotografi FRIM 2009, Unit Komunikasi Korporat, Institut Penyelidikan Perhutanan Malaysia (FRIM), 52109 Kepong, Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia.”
