THE Land Transport Department (JPD) is inviting members of the public to participate in a public bus design competition as part of its project to improve public transport.

In a press statement, the JPD said the winner of the competition will receive $1,500, while second and third place winners will receive $1,000 and $500 respectively.

The competition, which is open to citizens and permanent residents of Brunei, will run until 3pm on May 2.

The department said the design must be ‘simple and contemporary’ and, most importantly, based on ‘Bruneian values’. The design must also not be opposed to the Malay Muslim Monarchy (MIB) concept as well as the country’s vision of being a Zikir Nation.

In addition, each design should not use more than four colours (excluding black and white).

The department specified that a design must be submitted in both softcopy and hardcopy forms: as a JPEG, TIFF or PNG digital file on a DVD and on a piece of A3 paper (in the landscape format) placed on a black mounting board with a surrounding one-inch border.

The statement added that all submitted designs will become the property of the JPD. The department may modify and add patterns to winning designs with the approval of the participants.The evaluation procedure to determine the winner of the competition will be based on voting through social media and the short-listed entries will be judged by a panel of judges.

Application forms for the competition can be obtained from the JPD headquarters on Jalan Gadong, Beribi or the department’s website at
