AirAsia x Nikon: #IamAirAsiaTravelPhotographer Contest Launched
AirAsia and ThinkDharma Inc. (exclusive distributor of Nikon Digital Cameras) in partnership with AirAsia’s global loyalty programme, BIG, recently launched the #IamAirAsiaTravelPhotographer contest.
AirAsia Philippines Chairperson Maan Hontiveros led the launching of the exciting contest with Strategic Partnership Head Jenny Au and Senior Marketing Manager Caroline Wong of AirAsia BIG last week. ThinkDharma Inc., meanwhile, is represented by Abrigo Merin, Chief Executive Officer of OPAL, and Paolo Salazar, Head of Business Unit.
Two office workers, a car salesman and a barista are stepping out of their comfort zones and into the challenges of becoming the first AirAsia Travel Photographer for 2015. Winners will receive over 200,000 BIG Points or its equivalent free flights to any of AirAsia Group’s 100 destinations.
Four multi-awarded photographers and respected leaders in the industry will be part of the AirAsia Travel Photographer contest as mentors of the four contestants. Nikon Pros George Tapan, Raymond Cruz, Parc Cruz and AirAsia’s resident photojournalist Adam Lee will be traveling around exotic places in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand to help contestants capture their best entries across a range of categories that include landscape, food, portrait, architecture and travel.
Assisted by multi-awarded photographers from the Philippines and Malaysia as their personal coach, four pre-selected contestants will be traveling across Asia for one week starting July 21. They are:
- Velvet Lagman-Macasaet, an executive assistant and marathon runner
- Sarah Garcia, hotel front desk officer
- TJ Nepomuceno III, car salesman
- Paul Delfin, an indie music fan and barista
Online voting via www.airasiatravelphotographer.com will be opened to the public in August 20 with Nikon cameras and BIG Points to be given away to lucky voters. Grand winner will be announced in September 11.
