The iNYALA 2022 Open Call is designed to invite Malaysia-based undergraduate and postgraduate students to propose their new media artwork based on ONE (1) of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The open call competition aims to nurture young talents with data visualisation skillset to translate data into the form of digital artworks to facilitate more meaningful connections and deeper understanding on SDGs.
