The global event lets participants showcase the beauty of Malaysia using only your smartphone – and winners will receive up to $15,000 (about RM62,100) cash, one vivo smartphone, an award certificate, and have their photos featured in the National Geographic Magazine and other photo exhibitions too!
There are also six category winner prizes, each consisting of the same items except with $5,000 (about RM20,700) cash instead; while one honourable mention prize with $1,000 (about RM4,140) plus the other goodies will be awarded. The remaining top 30 contestants chosen will also win themselves a vivo smartphone too – not too shabby at all!
If you’re looking for inspiration on the kind of work to submit, Pulitzer Centre 2018 Grantee Ian Teh could be a good reference as he showcases his portraits of Malaysia, all taken using a vivo X50 Pro; not to toot our own horns, but we too had a go at creating with the X50 Pro which you can watch here:

Before you go...
Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation? How far should politicians be allowed to intervene in court cases? To monitor these issues as closely as we have in the past we need your support, so please consider donating to The Climax News Room.
