Play, Create and Live to Shape the Mall of the Future with #BeyondIT

Singapore, 15 April 2016 – Jointly organised by The Straits Times and Capitaland, #BeyondIT is a digital platform that invites Singaporeans to shape the mall of the future – to vision how it would be like to ‘Play.Create.Live’ in an integrated space right in the heart of the bustling Civic and Cultural District. The public can share their ideas under three broad categories of Play, Create and Live via www.straitstimes.com/beyondit from 15 April till 31 May 2016.

Submissions can be in the form of original images, videos and/or text. Participants stand to win attractive weekly and grand prizes in the form of STAR$®, which can be exchanged for CapitaVouchers for spending at over 2,000 participating stores in 18 operational CapitaLand malls throughout Singapore.

Participants whose entries are selected can look forward to seeing their ideas translated into large-scale graffiti artwork that will adorn the hoarding of the new integrated development. Homegrown graffiti artist Ceno2 will be at Funan DigitaLife Mall on 25 June 2016 to complete a graffiti wall mural that incorporates the shortlisted ideas submitted by participants. Shoppers can take photos with the wall mural, get them printed instantly and have Ceno2 tag on the customised photo sleeves.

The top five ideas per week selected by a judging panel will win 50,000 STAR$® (worth S$50 CapitaVouchers) each. This is based on ideas received from the first day (midnight) to the last day (before midnight) of the following qualifying period:
