Penang Heritage Photography Fiesta 2.0
Held in line with George Town UNESCO World Heritage Day, the highly anticipated Penang Heritage Photography Fiesta 2.0 returns bigger than before! Aimed to increase awareness of the historical significance of Penang’s tangible and intangible culture, PHPF 2.0 uses photography and videography as tools to document George Town’s heritage, whilst empowering youths and enthusiasts with practical photography skills.
This year’s theme highlights the rich historical and architectural legacy of the heritage buildings in George Town and pays tribute to the artistry of Penang’s traditional practitioners and craftsmen.
Besides the competitions which feature four categories with attractive prizes, there are also three workshops on street photography and videography led by SONY experts. Closing the campaign is a photography exhibition of winning entries from 1 – 16 July at New World Park.
The campaign is jointly organised by PPB Group Berhad and its property division – PPB Properties, SONY Malaysia and George Town Festival.

About the Artist
Born in Penang on 17 July 1977 as Fong Jhung Bin, A-bin Fang (方烱彬) is a Malaysian singer-songwriter. He is an alumnus of Heng Ee High School and the elder brother of A-jia Fang, another established Mandopop singer and music producer.
During the early stage of his music career, A-bin formed a music duo known as Island (“Nian Shao Zhi Dao”) with singer Qiu Wei Yi, though the latter left the group in 1997 and was subsequently replaced by Wee Kheng Ming. Following the release of several music albums in Malaysia and Taiwan, the duo split, citing reasons such as differences in interests and specialisations.
A-bin launched his first solo album “Good Guy?! A-bin” on 10 November 2008 after fellow Malaysian singer Penny Tai introduced him to Eric Chen, a renowned Taiwanese record producer and founder of record label Enjoy Music. He went on to release his second album “Bad Guy’s Love Songs: Regrets” in October 2009, which is a cover compilation of female Mandopop hits in the 1990s. In 2016, he signed with record label Ocean Butterflies.
This year marks A-bin’s 24th year in show business.
