World Vision Malaysia is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2017, and we’re looking to support young Malaysians interested in fashion design! Show your heart for children through your art. Create a t-shirt design that defines HOPE and LOVE for all children – to be cared for, nurtured and given the opportunity to maximise their potential and achieve their dreams.

Open to all Malaysian students aged 17-25, there will be two categories:

Category A: Students in Art or Design courses; Category B: Students in other courses

Amazing Prizes Up for Grabs!

The winning design from each category will be part of World Vision Malaysia’s 20th Anniversary special edition t-shirt line, with contributions going to our Education Fund.
