KUALA LUMPUR, 11 March 2021 – In an effort to promote Malaysia as the preferred destination and to boost domestic tourism, Tourism Malaysia has partnered with GoPro to bring forth a new social media challenge targeted towards all residing in Malaysia who captured their amazing travelling moments.
Titled ‘Dream Malaysia Challenge’, this challenge entails participants creating and posting a video highlighting the various breathtaking attractions within Malaysia that they have previously visited. Participants will get the chance to be rewarded with the latest GoPro HERO9 Black, GoPro MAX, GoPro HERO8 and amazing full board stays at Taman Negara, Gopeng Glamping Park and Tadom Hill to experience Malaysia’s beauty and wonders.
The partnership with GoPro has come at an opportune time where Malaysians are eagerly planning for their next travels. It is a way to remind Malaysians that they never have to travel too far to find exciting destinations and this challenge does exactly that. Tourism Malaysia couldn’t be happier to partner with the world’s leading action camera brand to see what Malaysians could capture from our diverse and unique destinations in Malaysia.
GoPro Southeast Asia’s Marketing Manager, Sangeet Singh, detailed his excitement for this partnership, “We can’t discount the importance of domestic travelling, we are thrilled to be working with Tourism Malaysia that has been devoted to building up Malaysia’s culturally rich and stunning destinations while supporting local businesses. We are looking forward to seeing how creative participants will get with their video submissions for this challenge!”
How To Participate
The ‘Dream Malaysia Challenge’ allows the submission of all videos captured from any device. All participants have to ensure that their edited videos have been polished up through the GoPro App available for iOS and Android devices and supports photos and videos from any phone or camera, including GoPros and SLRs. Once that is completed, individuals can send in their 30-45 second videos via the GoPro Awards Portal under the challenge Malaysia|Living Local to confirm their submission.
In addition, participants are also required to post their videos on their personal Facebook and Instagram profiles detailing their travel experience in the caption using both the #DreamMalaysia and #GoProxTourismMalaysia hashtags as well as tagging GoPro on Instagram and Facebook (@gopromysg) and Tourism Malaysia’s Instagram (@malaysia.truly.asia) and Facebook (@malaysia.travel.my). If participants wish to add background sound for their videos, it is important to note that the music used can only be taken from the GoPro app.
The ‘Dream Malaysia Challenge’ will take place from 13th March 2021 to 28th March 2021 at 11pm. Video submission can be sent during this timeframe.
