Y.B. Tan Sri Datuk Seri Shahrir bin Hj Abd Samad, Member of Parliment for Johor Bahru, officially launched the IM klik Photography Competition today at a ceremony help at Double Tree Johor Bahru. The Competition is organised by Iskandar Investment Berhad (IIB).

Also present at the launch was Tuan Haji Md. Hasidin bin Hj. Zaini, Assistant Director of Johor State Education Department.

Through this Competition we want to showcase that Iskandar Malaysia is more than bricks and mortar. We want the many faces, emotions and expressions of Iskandar Malaysia to be captured and celebrated by Iskandarians themselves. We want them to share the various images of Iskandar Malaysia as captured through their lenses."
