Gamuda Land’s Through Your Lens photography contest returns with its fourth and final theme “Nature & Environment”. This time, the race for the grand prize is either a unit at HighPark Suites or RM20,000 cash.
Introduced in January 2020, the photography contest has successfully garnered more than a thousand meaningful pictures showcasing firstly “community”, then “town-making” and “design innovation” in the first three months of the competition respectively. The contest was however paused in accordance to the government’s implementation of the Movement Control Order.
“Despite all that has taken place over the past few months, we would like to thank all participants for their submissions so far. It has been a humbling journey seeing all the wonderful photos and thoughtful messages that have been submitted. We would also like to thank the public for their patience and understanding on the delay of the contest,” said Ngan Chee Meng, CEO of Gamuda Land.
Ngan added that while the landscape of the pandemic remains uncertain, it is also important for us to continue to adapt to the changes in our new normal. Maintain a certain normalcy in our lifestyle – be socially connected yet physically distant in a safe environment. “We hope that by bringing back the contest, it would give people some excitement to look forward to. So, let’s make this final round of contest a memorable one!” he said.
The Final Theme – Nature & Environment
The contest period will run from 1st-30th September with the same rules and regulations applied during the launch, which can be found on Gamuda Land’s website https://gamudaland.com.my/throughyourlens/.
Ngan also expressed that the final theme of Gamuda Land: Through Your Lens is also timely as the pandemic has invoked our inner appreciation towards green living environment. Since MCO, many have started to increase their exposure to nature for some fresh air, which is reflected in a sudden surge of social media posts and keyword searches on scenic nature walks location.
“Respecting nature and the environment is one of Gamuda Land’s brand values that we hold close to our heart. We consciously take into consideration natural elements such as the land topography, native plant species, existing biodiversity, water bodies and more when developing a new project. When town-making is done right, the beauty of nature can be consumed right on one’s doorstep,” added Ngan.
“To do it right, our team commits to conduct biodiversity audit in our developments prior to any groundworks. This will serve as a benchmark for future audits to determine the environmental health and wellness in our developments. This is one of our ways to scientifically quantify our mindful approach to town-making, and to gauge the effectiveness of our programs in growing the biodiversity in our townships,” Ngan explained, adding that the photos and captions submitted for this theme should creatively demonstrate Gamuda Land’s effort in caring for nature and environment. It can be through some shots of animals, rare species of plants, Gamuda Land’s signature central parks in all its townships, verdant greenery and natural landscaping.
