The smartphone brand is launching a mobile photography competition in collaboration with National Geographic, in conjunction with vivo’s VISION+ Initiative.
As part of vivo’s efforts to build a visual ecosystem, the vivo VISION+ Mobile Photography Awards is open to all smartphone users in the country. Participants can showcase the beauty of their everyday life in Malaysia and stand a chance to win prizes worth more than USD 46,000 (approximately RM 190,000).
Malaysians can take inspiration from British-Malaysian photographer and Pulitzer Centre 2018 Grantee Ian Teh as he captures the serenity of Malaysia using the vivo X50 Pro. Ian’s journey tells a story of the daily Malaysian life that is coloured by the diversity of culture and the joys of small, everyday moments. Through the lens of the vivo X50 Pro, Ian narrates his journey and is now available on vivo Malaysia’s YouTube page for all to view.
The competition is to let Malaysians tell their own story by capturing the beauty of their everyday life through the power of mobile photography.
The contest will allow smartphone users around the world to showcase their photography skills, in which outstanding entries will stand a chance for their submission to be entered into the international photography awards, where their photos will be submitted to a panel of judges, including world-class photographers, Steve McCurry and Michael Halsband.
Winning entries will be walking away with the following prizes:
