KUCHING – Three students from the Faculty of Business, Design and Arts of Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus have taken home top prizes in the recent Sarawak Youth Talent (SYT) 2021 storytelling poster and videography competition.

With 239 universities, colleges and secondary school students from all around Sarawak participating in the competition this year, the three Swinburne students were announced as winners in the one-minute videography segment under the university and college category.

Among the five students who won the Outstanding Award in the university and college category, Swinburne Sarawak Bachelor of Business undergraduates Grace Lee Joo Ling and Clement Ting Tze Liang were awarded prizes for their short videos entitled ‘The Value of Art’ and ‘Domestic Tourism’ respectively.

Meanwhile, Bachelor of Design student Peter Yek Nai Xin received the Commended Award for his video entitled ‘Sarawak Laksa – Flavour of Unity’ among 13 winners in the same category.

This year, the submissions were evaluated virtually by 20 national judges and eight international judges from various institutions, including the Sarawak Tourism Board, AirAsia Regional Centre of Expertise Kuching and Emerald Publishing (East Asia).

SYT is an annual event co-organised by the Sarawak Research Society (SRS) and UCSI University Sarawak Campus with the support of the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture Sarawak and Jabatan Pendidikan Negeri (JPN) Sarawak.

The event seeks to encourage responsible tourism behaviour among the younger generation and inspire innovation, and it also offers a platform for them to be involved in responsible tourism development. The theme for this year’s competition was ‘Responsible Behaviour towards Tourism, Arts and Culture in Sarawak’.
