Get your cameras ready folks, as Penang’s very own Open Distance Learning institution, Wawsasan Open University is coming up with a photography contest starting next week! Below is all the info I gathered from their website:
“Wawasan Open University is organising a two-month web digital photography contest to encourage participants to capture the flexible and accessible nature of open distance and lifelong learning available at the university.
The competition themed ‘Your World, Your Classroom’ will run until April 16th and is open to everyone with no age limit. Attractive prizes await the winners while the first 100 participants will receive a WOU t-shirt.
The best entry to the contest is set to win a Macbook Air followed by one Macbook White as second prize and one I-Pod Touch as third. There will be 10 I-Pod Shuffles given away as consolation prizes.
WOU also promises a special prize of a Digital SLR Canon camera for the contestant who sends out his digital snapshot to the most number of friends, family and acquaintances.
The rule of the contest is simple: Take a digital photograph of yourself studying, where you are portrayed reading a book or browsing through your laptop in the most interesting background setting or environment imaginable, and then caption the digital snapshot.
“We want to show how WOU offers a golden opportunity for people to pursue quality tertiary education at their own pace and leisure. The easy IT connectivity in the world we now live has made studying anywhere, anytime, a reality,” said a WOU spokesperson.
To send in your entries, just click onto the web entry form at contest.wou.edu.my, follow the simple instructions and submit your postcard online.
For inquiries, call the Corporate Communications Department of the university at 04-2289323.”
So do look out next week as I bring you more information about this contest! Or you may choose to call them up directly to ask for further details.
