Nando's Art Initiative 2018

"YOUthReka”, the theme for this year’s Nando's Art Initiative, is back with the annual 2018 Art Competition. Over the last 11 years, this initiative has provided a platform for creative youths from all walks of life to put forth their talent for the world to witness and appreciate.

The competition this year received a total of 468 submissions covering both the Fine Art and Digital Art category. An exhibition was held from 14 -24 August 2018, which showcased over 40 amazing artworks from participants nationwide. Which incorporated special additions to further nurture these young creative talents and to provide for those who are just dabbling in the arts themselves.

Also there were eight additional art works created by local Autistic artists and a special ‘Pop-Art’ session with art collective Titikmerah, in line with the purpose of the Nando’s Art Initiative, which is to enable changes to the lives of youth regardless of who they are or where they come from.

The exhibition coincided with the announcement of the YOUthReka Art Competition 2018 winners and prize giving ceremony. The winners of the Grand Prize were Choo Ai Xin with her piece titled "Old Town Ipoh" in the Fine Art category and Chew Song Kee with his art piece "Crow Guest" in the Digital Art category. Joining them are Ong Cai Bin, grabbing 1st Runner-Up with her artwork "Peep's World II" and 2nd Runner-Up Lau Pik Yoke with her artwork "A View of the Past" in the Fine Art category.

All artworks displayed has been judged based on originality and creativity, the story (concept & idea), quality of design and composition, use of medium and artistic finish, and overall impression.
