'Merdeka' means Independence in Malay! It’s the Independent Day of Malaya on 31st August 1957. The establishment of Malaysia fell on 16th September 1963 when Singapore, Sabah and Sarawak joined Malaya to form Malaysia.
Years after a few decades, we, Malaysians, still celebrate the Independent Day and the Malaysia Day with full joys and spirits. Tons of celebration and events are ongoing in the schools, cities, and ‘kampung’ (village in Malay!) in the months of August and September, which are known as the patriotic months.
Lomography Malaysia would like to invite the whole Lomography community to join the fun of Malaysians too! All you need to do is to submit shots of objects with the color combination of red, white, yellow and blue, these are the colors of Malaysian flag “Jalur Gemilang”! Which means, you don’t have to be a Malaysian or be in Malaysia to take part of this!
Well, of course Malaysians, you are encouraged to submit shots that showcase the ongoing celebrations and colorful street deco, so everyone else in the community could share the joy!
