Thirty winners will be chosen, says Wong
TAKE part in the inaugural My Selangor Story 2010 Bloggers competition and you stand a chance of winning two fabulous holidays.
All you have to do to qualify is to be a travel blogger who writes in English, Malay, Bahasa Indonesia or Chinese. If you are over the age of 18, send in a 60-second video of yourself or submit a short essay (between 300 and 1,000 words) about yourself or both.
The competition, organised by Tourism Selangor and Horizon Communications, is open to bloggers from Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.
Thirty bloggers will be chosen.
Selangor tourism, consumer and environment committee chairman Elizabeth Wong, who launched the event, says that bloggers must send in their entries before Sept 5 to qualify for the five-day/four-night trip on Sept 24. In choosing the 30 bloggers to go on the trip, the judging panel will look at the number of followers the blogger has, his creativity and the quality of the entry. During the trip, the bloggers will drive in new BMWs to Genting Highlands before returning to stay at Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa and visit Sunway Lagoon Theme Park. Also on the agenda is a visit to Kampung Kuantan in Kuala Selangor to see fireflies and a sunset dinner at Ampang lookout point.
At the end of every night, bloggers will upload their pictures and update their blog with their day’s activities. There are seven categories — most creative blog, best write-up, most interactive blog, best photo and best video — but the winner for the most popular blog will win an additional three-day/two-night stay at Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa with four entrance tickets to Sunway Lagoon, two Firefly tickets to Terengganu, a three-day/two-night stay at Awana Kijal Terengganu and more.
