After the preliminary selection, 15 finalists entered the final round, and an online judging meeting was held on May 10. It was honoured to invite the Director of China Cultural Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Mr. Zhang Jiexin, the chairman of Malaysian Chinese Tourism Association, Dato Albert Tan Sam Soon, and the General Manager of Travellution media, Mr. Paul Chin as judges. 5 selected winners would receive a tin of famous tea–Hangzhou Shifeng Longjing tea, and a limited edition souvenir from China Cultural Centre in Kuala Lumpur, while the other 5 shortlisted candidates will receive 6 issues of Travellution magazine.
Mr. Zhang Jiexin commented, “The participants are very good at writing, and there were individuals whose use of the power of words surpassed the appeal of the photos!” While Mr. Paul Chin said, “To judge the entries from a photographer’s perspective, I am pleased to see that many of the places in China are well photographed by participants.”
