Tampines Together, #Tampines United Drawing Competition

Tampines Together, #Tampines United Drawing Competition

Because of the current COVID-19 situation, we have changed our annual photo contest to a drawing contest!

2020 has been a tough year for everyone, but we will continue in our battle against COVID-19 emerging stronger. In the face of crisis, we witnessed how communities remain united, showing solidarity.

With the theme “Tampines Together, #TampinesUnited” in mind, submit a drawing of how the kampong spirit is alive and stronger during these challenging times.

It can be a time when you received a care pack from your neighbours, or everyone in the estate displayed the Singapore flag to show unity! We believe that such community stories will inspire everyone to strive on together.

Bring out your inner Picasso and start drawing today for a chance to win attractive cash vouchers!
