The competition is open to all citizens of all ages, Malaysia and My Second Home (MM2H), and it is organised by the Assembly Service Center of the Batu Maung.

The aim of the competition was to increase awareness and promote Batu Maung as an eco-tourist destination, said Batu Maung Assemblyman Datuk Abdul Halim Hussain.

“There are many hidden treasures in this humble township; such as the country’s one and only Penang War Museum, the Sam Poh Footprint Temple (Cheng Ho’s temple), the fishing villages and the traditional homes.

“With these exciting places of interest, I hope many participants will join this competition,” he told a press conference.

Abdul Halim also hoped that in Penang, especially Batu Maung, the competition would encourage domestic tourism.

He said that the participants could only take photographs or videos at any or all of the following 10 places in Batu Maung for the contest.

They are the second Penang bridge coastal area, the coastal areas of Permatang Damar Laut and Permatang Tepi Laut, Taman Jajar Sungai Ara, Penang War Museum, Sam Poh Footprint Temple, The Loft, Old Teluk Tempoyak Jetty and Medan Ikan Bakar, Bukit Sungai Ara and the coastal area of Teluk Tempoyak (near quarry).
