Wang ZiYi won the Merit Award
The call for entries required participants to produce a short film on the theme of "Detailed Results of the 2021 Population Census", with the aim of increasing public understanding of the characteristics and changes of Macau's population. It is hoped that through the production of the video, students will be able to understand and use the official statistics correctly, as well as to develop their own creativity. Using the three-dimensional drawing feature of the software Mental Canvas, student Wang ZiYi integrated Macau's census data with characteristic landscape architecture and positioned the video in a fresh and simple style.
