The purpose of the centre is to provide suitable programmes catered to children, teens, adults, senior citizens, including those of special needs. These programmes are meant to help the community with their personal development through assorted hobbies and interest activities and sessions.
The competition saw top 3 winners, The One Academy graduates and their creative submissions selected by the judges. The winners walked away with RM1000 total cash prize. The prizes were presented by Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim for their effort in designing top notch logo designs.
The top 3 winners were, William Sii who submitted an innovative and vibrant design, Lee Kim Chin for his creativity designing an amiable and trendy logo design and finally, Lee Soon Cheng for her artistic design with brushstroke-like elements. All artworks submitted were truly attractive that the judges found it difficult to select the best.

According to one of the winners, William Sii, he said “No matter how busy we are striving in our career, as designers, we always look forward to these challenges to keep the flame within us burning.”
Their creative interest has led these graduates to look forward to the expansion of the creative community in Malaysia. Thus, by contributing their talents and skills, this makes it one step closer to building a creative nation.

Opportunities are not just restricted to careers, but one can find breakthrough in other platforms such as competitions, industry projects, collaborations and more. For these designers, one of it is participating in a competition out of interest. Their passion is driven by their love for creativity and not just because of winnings.
