Yayasan Budi Penyayang Malaysia (PENYAYANG) organises the Piala Seri Endon Batik Design Competition as part of the Malaysia Batik-Crafted for the World Movement. The 17th edition of this prestigious Competition will take place in 2022.
The Competition was created to discover and support, recognise, and encourage Malaysia’s batik-making talent, and it is open to Malaysians over the age of 18. Because Piala Seri Endon is a Batik design competition, each participant or team must create their own batik. From Round 1 to the Grand Finals, the competition is judged by a panel of 16 people.
The competition comprises three (3) categories:
- Fashion Category
- Soft Furnishing category; and
- Handicraft category
For each of the three (3) categories:
- The grand prize is RM30,000.00;
- The Second prize is RM10,000.00, and

There are also (5) consolation prizes of RM1,000.00 each for each category.
