Students Showcase Anti-Smoking WhatsApp Stickers and Comics at Latest "Art in MTR" Exhibition

 
Oct. 19, 2021 - PRLog -- The winning creations in the "'Quit Smoking for Good' 4-grid Comics Competition and 'Smoke-free, Healthy and Happy' WhatsApp Stickers Design Competition" will be on display at an "Art in MTR" exhibition at Sheung Wan and Sai Wan Ho stations from today (19 October 2021) until 9 January 2022 to bring home anti-smoking messages via the format of WhatsApp stickers and comics.

Organised by the Hong Kong Lung Foundation, the Hong Kong Thoracic Society and the CHEST Delegation Hong Kong and Macau, the competition aims to publicise the harm of traditional cigarettes and e-cigarettes to the public. "In a survey of primary and secondary students in 2020, around 36% of interviewees believed that e-cigarettes were less harmful than traditional cigarettes. In fact, both of them can harm our health," said Dr Wong Wei-yin, Vice President of CHEST Delegation Hong Kong and Macau. "We hope that the quit-smoking messages can reach a wider population through such prevalent forms of communication," Dr Wong added.

"Health is our greatest wealth. 'Art in MTR' is glad to host this exhibition to promote a smoke-free environment and the importance of a healthy lifestyle through the animated designs of our young students in lively formats," said Ms Linda Choy, Corporate Affairs and Branding Director of MTR Corporation.

MTR Corporation works with local and international artists to integrate art into stations by offering space at different MTR stations for art exhibitions under the "Art in MTR" programme to promote artistic talent and the public's art appreciation. Interested artists and organisations may call the MTR Hotline at 2881 8888 for enquiry or submit their proposals to the Corporation.
