This weekend, Spotlight by Penang Art District presents a youth art competition for teens and children aged 18 years old and under. My Creative City is organised in conjunction withx Penang Arts Week produced by Penang Exco for Tourism Development, Arts, Culture and Heritage (PETACH). The art competition aims to encourage children and youths to explore their inner talents and express themselves through the arts. We call on young budding artists to draw or paint their vision of a creative city.

There will be two categories for the art competition – Under 12 and Under 18 categories. 15 entries will be shortlisted and displayed at an exhibition which will be open to the public for voting during the competition. The shortlisted entries will also be evaluated by a panel of judges, consisting of YB Yeoh Soon Hin, Penang Exco for Tourism Development, Arts, Culture and Heritage (PETACH); Cheng Yeow Chye, founder of Yeow Chye Art Studio; and Azmi Hussin, Penang-born cartoonist and caricature artist. The top three entries of each category with the most public votes and points from the panel of judges will stand a chance to win prizes up to RM500 in cash and RM200 of cash vouchers for art supplies.
