This contest was held to attract art lovers from all walks of life to articulate the essence of Malaysia in conjunction with the recent Malaysia Day celebrations.
The competition received an overwhelming response where participants had to showcase their works on the iconic Starbucks cup and it drew over 200 participants. Some 100 of the works made it to the finals and were put on show at the recent KakiSeni International Arts Festival where the prize-giving ceremony was held at Pavilion KL where winners included the Tiger Cup from Chong Poh Chin, Orangutan Cup from Amy Ammelia and the Teh Tarik Cup from Eleanor Lim, among many others.
