Snap away and be rewarded for it

BE PART OF IT: The exhibition’s secretariat putting up some of the photos that have been submitted by visitors for the ‘People’s Gallery’ lucky draw.

BINTULU: Visitors to the development exhibition on ‘45 Years of Sarawak’s Progress in Malaysia’ at the civic centre here are encouraged to take pictures inside the exhibition hall.

In fact, the more photographs they take and submit to the organisers of the exhibition, the higher the chances for them to win a mobile phone through the ‘People’s Gallery’ lucky draw.

According to the organisers, the draw would be conducted on the last day of the exhibition - April 18.

For those interested in taking part, all they have to do is take photos of themselves, their family members or their friends, in any of the exhibition galleries.

After printing these photos, participants are required to fill their personal particulars on the back of each photo and then submit them to the secretariat stationed at the civic centre’s hall. These photos then become the ‘entry forms’ for the lucky draw.

Although creativity is not a criteria for winning, the incentive for taking creative photos would be that other people would get to admire the participants’ skills, as the photos submitted would be displayed on the ‘People’s Gallery’ panel at the exhibition.

These photos then become part of the exhibition displays for all to see.

Apart from the ‘People’s Gallery’ lucky draw, visitors can also take part in the ‘Bring-A-Friend’ lucky draw, which also offers two mobile phones as the main prize.

Visitors only need to fill their particulars in a form handed out at the entrance of the exhibition venue, and then submit it to the secretariat.

The first draw for ‘Bring-A-Friend’ will be held this Saturday and the next one will be held on the second last day of the exhibition.

This offers visitors more opportunities to win as they can fill in a form each time they visit the exhibition with their family and friends.

The two-week exhibition held at civic centre has been open to the public since April 5. It was officially launched by Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr George Chan on April 7.

From Monday to Friday the exhibition is open from 10am to 5pm, and on weekends it is open from 10am to 8pm. Entrance is free.

The exhibition is organised by the State Government through the State Implementation Monitoring Unit of the Chief Minister’s Department, with Faradale Media-M Sdn Bhd as the main consultants.
