1MISM Organises Merdeka Video Competition

KUALA LUMPUR, July 17 (Bernama) -- The 1Malaysia Indian Students Movement (1MISM) is organising a Merdeka video competition for tertiary students.

1MISM president D. Mahaganapathy said the competition was aimed at instilling in students patriotism and a sense of belonging to the nation through the use of creative multimedia.

The technology-savvy younger generation would be able to express their patriotism in another form, through a video presentation, compared to the old way of merely waving the national flag, he told Bernama.

Mahaganapathy said the students could produce the three-minute video as a short film, animation or other form on the theme of 'Unity though Diversity'.

The competition, which opened yesterday, would close on Aug 20 and offered attractive prizes, among them smartphones and cameras, he said.

The entry form and details were available on the website,, he added.
