The Penang Bridge International Marathon committee has opened its poster design competition for participation by the public this week. Those with creative talents or an interest in graphic design are encouraged to participate and to submit their best design to the committee. The first prize winner for this competition will receive the cash prize of RM2,000 while the second prize winner will receive RM1,000.
Furthermore, the winning design may also be used as the overall design theme for this year’s Penang Bridge International Marathon, if it meets the required standards, which will appear in all promotional items including flyers, billboards, web banners, runner’s guide, ads and more.
Participants are required to submit a printed A4 copy together with a CD containing the working file to the Penang Tourism Development and Culture office at Level 53, KOMTAR, 10503 George Town, Penang. All submissions must reach the office by 28 February 2013 and must include the participant’s name, IC number, contact number and address. For enquiries on the design competition, email

The Penang Bridge International Marathon 2013 will be held on 17 November at the Second Penang Bridge. Last year, the committee received a total of 34,500 runners and was named as Malaysia’s Largest Bridge Run by Malaysia Book of Records for the second consecutive year. This year, the committee is targeting a total of 50,000 runners. We are expecting the event to be much bigger and hope it can be broadcasted on national television this time round. Hence, the committee is actively looking for bigger sponsors and cordially invites organizations who are interested to contact its office.
The early bird (online) registration for the marathon will tentatively open on 1 March at www.penangmarathon.gov.my.
