- OPPO launches ‘66 Potret Malaysia’ contest and aims to inspire Malaysians with a contest that celebrates, captures, and shares our collective stories of Malaysia through portrait photography.
As Malaysia soon marks its 66th Independence Day, the nation is gearing up towards three weeks’ worth of festivities until Malaysia Day, in celebration of our collective histories, cultures and identities. To commemorate this, OPPO, a global leader in innovative technology, proudly presents “66 Potret Malaysia” – a short film that offers a captivating glimpse into Malaysia’s soul through a collection of 66 stunning portraits.
Each portrait, skillfully captured using the OPPO Reno10 Pro+ 5G, captures the essence of Malaysia’s diversity in people, culture, and environment through the lens of Malaysian photographer Khairul Amin. “66 Potret Malaysia” presents a touching tribute to Khairul’s late mother, whose love and nurture had left an indelible mark on his life, leading him towards his pursuit for photography and pride for the country.
“My mom’s love saw no colour – only hearts,” said Khairul, as he reflected on his mother’s sense of spirit, unity, and respect for others in the places they went and the stories she told.
“Her stories were snapshots, capturing the respect we have for our diversity. These lessons, now memories, shape every frame I take with my OPPO. This Merdeka, each click of my OPPO remembers her. 66 portraits for 66 years, echoing the heartbeat of our land, the people, the diversity she held dear, “ said Khairul Amin in the film, ’66 Potret Malaysia’.
With Khairul Amin’s 66 Portraits of Malaysia, OPPO, in its pursuit of technological innovation for mankind and kindness for the world, hopes to inspire Malaysians to capture and memorialize moments that make us unique as Malaysians.
