VAP 3's winning art pieces were insightful and moving creations taking inspiration from themes close to the heart including family, vision and the new art of miniature paintings.

Second place was bestowed to Muhamad Hirzaq bin Abdul Harris with his breathtaking piece, 'The Eye' which highlights vision and how looking and seeing the world is a matter of perspective and should always be valued.
Third place went to miniature art enthusiast, Siti Fariza Basri with her colourful collection of tiny paintings which required an extremely patient and steady hand and mind to complete.
