The second edition of Bersama2050 concluded on September 18, 2022.
After ten month of hardwork, both the competition (artwork, video & photography) and exhibition at the Berjaya Times Square Kuala Lumpur over 21 days were completed with no hiccups.
From the total submission of seventy-four in the three categories, 30 artists were put on display over the Merdeka and Malaysia Day season. The competition was judged by Amir Muhammad (Kuman Pictures), Vignes Balasingam (Obscura Festivals) & Michael Linde (Kreativer Klub).
The winners were recognised and honoured at separate events during the exhibition. CIMB Foundation, Westports Malaysia and Friedrich Naumann Foundation were the key sponsors for the programme.
The Malaysian German Chamber of Commerce were partners and supported the event by holding their social event at the exhibition site on September 7, 2022. The German magazine did a cover story about Bersama2050 for its August edition.
The national anti-graft initiative, Rasuah Busters, under the auspices of Sinar Harian and Karangkraf, held two events at the exhibition site on September 10 and 18.
Prior, in July, Bersama2050 held a day long workshop for the aboriginal community in Pulau Indah by Klang Port. This is part of Bersama2050's effort to increase aboriginal peoples' participation. The eventual winner of the photography section, Noramira Marzuki is a member of the Temiar tribe.
Overall, this year was high impact compared to the first edition in 2021. My Kampus Radio (MKR) still intends to promote the physical exhbition at its roadshow in early 2023 around and in ten rural campuses.
