MyMy supports Malaysia’s arts community with its #MyMalaysia campaign


Malaysia’s art scene has been one of the hardest hit by the pandemic. With live music banned, entertainment precincts closed and galleries shut, many artists have been put in a compromising financial position.



This is why MyMy - short for ‘My Malaysia’ - came up with the #MyMalaysia campaign; to help empower these hard-hit artists to continue doing what they love. Through #MyMalaysia, MyMy is encouraging artists to share Malaysia through their eyes (or lens, in this case) and reward the best entries with money and a feature on the MyMy Instagram page. Instagram users can see some of the brilliant work already submitted via @mymy, or by searching #MyMalaysia, on Instagram.



“MyMy sees Malaysia’s underground art scene as a symbol of our country's progress. In the spirit of #KitaJagaKita, we wanted to play a small part in helping these incredible local artists survive and thrive, whilst also sharing their works to remind fellow Malaysians just how beautiful their country is,” said MyMy’s CEO, Kishore Samuel. “It has been a tough year for all of us, yet Malaysians are steadfast and the love for our country remains strong. We hope that with #MyMalaysia, we will be reminded of the wonders of our nation, the strength of our people and the uniqueness of our local culture.”



“Starting with the #MyMalaysia incentive, MyMy wants to empower all Malaysians to see their country with fresh eyes, and be part of the country’s progress. Which is also why we’re building a product for all Malaysians. One that’s intuitive, easy-to-access and has Malaysia at its very core”, continues MyMy’s Co-Founder, Joe McGuire.



MyMy wants to see how all Malaysians view their beautiful country, and welcomes participation from any Malaysians who’d like to share their artwork showcasing the beauty of Malaysia. Do follow and be sure to tag @MyMy on Instagram and hashtag #MyMalaysia. Selected entries will be rewarded.
