Did you guys know that Sarawak Tourism Board is looking for aspiring art designers

among the public to help create the look for the Rainforest World Music Festival and

Borneo Jazz?

The winning design will be used to re-brand the 2014 festivals in

promotional materials. Which is cool right? All the promo material will use the winning design,

organiser, Sarawak Tourism Board."

Any entries can be made in group or individual. Whoever hav…
