Photo Library

Sarawak Tourism Board will launch its first digital photo library on September 23.

The Library intends to provide an archive of free professional images of different tourist attractions in Sarawak to the public which will include images of landscapes, buildings, animals, plants, food and people endemic to Sarawak.

It can be accessed at photo.sarawaktourism.com and can be freely used with credit mention to Sarawak Tourism Board by tourism partners and media, students and individuals whose interest relate to the tourism industry.

The Photo Library was set up in the hopes of promoting Sarawak’s main attractions through impressive images that encapsulate the uniqueness of Sarawak as a tourism destination.

While the database will be available for viewing without fees, copyright will remain under Sarawak Tourism Board and users are required to fulfill the online registration upon downloading the full high-definition images, in order to monitor the circulation of those images.
