Terengganu State Government is organising an oil lamp competition known as the ‘Pelita Raya Online Beautiful Terengganu: PKP Raya Style 2020’, with RM8,000 worth of prizes.
The competition will take place from May 18 until May 26, which would also indirectly promote Terengganu in the future as a 'must tourist destination,' according to Tourism, Culture, and Information Technology Committee chairman Ariffin Deraman.
He said villagers have a practice of lighting oil lamps at home and on roads to lighten up Ramadan 's last nights and to welcome Syawal.
“However, this year’s Ramadan and Aidilfitri atmosphere is a bit gloomy as the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) is still on due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“..it is hoped the competition will at least cheer things up for families, as well as the neighborhood so that they will be more creative in brightening up the nights and Raya celebration,” he said in a statement here today.
The competition is open to all residents of Terengganu, where participants need to use their creativity to show the decoration of oil lamps through videos or images in their homes.
Ariffin said in the video category, that participants must be able to edit their videos to make it more interesting and to make sure the clip sent does not exceed two minutes.
For the category of photos, participants must submit at least five pictures of oil lamp decoration including a preparation scene shot and an individual or group photo.
Participation must be sent through Beautiful Terengganu Malaysia Facebook and must follow the terms set, he said.
Ariffin is confident that the competition will also add value to tourism products in the state.
