PUTRAJAYA – As part of efforts to promote Malaysia as a top-of-mind tourist destination during this year’s Malaysia Year of Festivals campaign, Tourism Malaysia will be launching the #beautifulMalaysia online photo contest where avid travellers and photography enthusiasts worldwide are invited to submit photos that best encapsulate the beauty of Malaysia through the lens.
 
The contest, which runs for 14 consecutive weeks from 15 June till 20 September 2015, is open to those aged 13 years and above, and participation is at no cost. Participants can submit photos of Malaysia based on the following themes, i.e. places to explore, festivals and celebrations, food and shopping.
 
A customised website (www.tourism.gov.my/beautifulMalaysia) for this campaign is already up and running to promote the contest and to give information on the rules and regulations.
 
Beginning 15 June, participants can start uploading their photo submissions directly to the website with very simple steps. Alternatively, participants can post their photos on Instagram by including the hashtag #beautifulMalaysia. Photos will then be compiled, moderated and displayed in the website. Judging is based on creativity of the photograph, suitable caption and relevance to the categories.
 
Each week, the best photo will be hand-picked by Tourism Malaysia. Among the many grand prizes waiting to be won are the GoPro Hero 4, an iPad Air 2, the Canon EOS 100D and the OPPO Find 5.
 
Meanwhile, to promote the contest, Tourism Malaysia will be releasing specially designed postcards that will be placed at selected airports in Malaysia. The winners of the contest will also have their winning photos displayed on the postcards at the end of the contest period.
 
The photo contest will be officially launched on 27 June 2015 at IOI City Mall, Putrajaya, in conjunction with the launch of the 1Malaysia Mega Sale Carnival. Dubbed the ‘Mother of All Sales’, the 1Malaysia Mega Sale offers great shopping bargains and many exciting events.
 
Malaysia’s other major shopping seasons are the 1Malaysia GP Sale and the 1Malaysia Year-End Sale scheduled for 14 November 2015 to 3 January 2016. All three seasons give shoppers ample time and opportunities to experience the best shopping excitement, dining options, endless entertainment and fun-filled activities.
