WE MADE IT HAPPEN!

The BEGINNING

The idea for this 24 hours non-stop photography challenge comes from Victor Tong, founder of Revolve Production and a professional photographer with a decade of experience in the creative photography industry. The nation has just entered the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) phase when Victor was in a discussion with Malaysia Book of Records and Panasonic Lumix for a collaboration project to spread positive vibes among fellow Malaysians during this challenging Covid-19 period. The first phase of the project which was planned in Kuala Lumpur slowly picked up pace right after Malaysiakini’s event arm, Kini Events, decided to join hand in hand with Revolve Production to organise this event as they find the project’s objectives were in line with their KITA MALAYSIA project. 

The reason WHY WE DID IT?

The lack of acknowledgement from fellow Malaysians to Malaysians is brutally noticeable especially when it comes to the creative sector, including the visual and photography world. Many Malaysian photographers have received global recognition from international bodies so much so that a specific curated session titled ‘Malaysia vs Global Photography’ was featured in the 2016 international photography convention held in Shanghai, China, yet they are not recognized in our homeland. Now, was it a lack of effort from our talents or was it the lack of a platform for them to be seen by our own nation?

I ask this as a Malaysian Photographer, where do you think we stand globally? I answer as a proud Malaysian Photographer, we are among the top Internationally! We believe the lack of acknowledgement does not only occur in our industry but to many other sectors in Malaysia. Hence, through this project, we wish to create a platform where Malaysian talents can have the opportunity to showcase their creativity and receive recognition from our fellow Malaysians.
