Urbanscapes is back! And as some of you may know, it is not just a huge concert with a bunch of cool international and local acts. It is, in fact, a multi-arts festival that beautifully combines music and visual arts.

And this year, R.AGE is giving ONE talented young artist the opportunity of a lifetime to get his/her work featured at the festival.

All you have to do is design a scaled-down version of a mural based on the theme, A Moderate Malaysia, and email your design to us! Simple huh? And if you get selected by one of our judges – artists Jojo Yusuf, TRUSK and R.AGE editor Ian Yee – you’ll get your very own space on site at Urbanscapes, where you can set up and showcase your mural.

But that’s not all… The winner will have his/her work featured in R.AGE, plus a chance to help design a special edition of R.AGE!

As for those who didn’t win, fret not because we are giving out some Urbanscapes passes to the top five contestants. That means you’ll get to catch Kimbra, Local Natives, The Lemonheads, OJ Law, Paperplane Pursuit and many others live!
