Have a favourite hangout spot, eatery or even a stationery shop that you want others to know about? Just snap a photo and upload it onto FINDIT, the largest digital directory service in the country. Through the FINDIT Photo Contest, users can take pictures of their favourite places around them and submit it via the FINDIT app. By doing this, they will be able to populate the directory with the best places in Malaysia and share it with others, while winning RM1 worth of airtime for each photo submitted.
To take part in the contest which runs until end of June 2014, users can just download the FINDIT app for free, click on Photo Contest, and follow the steps below:
- Take a geo-tagged photo of any place of interest (POI)
- Fill in your name and Maxis mobile number
- Upload the photo*
T. Kugan, Maxis’ Head of Digital Services said, “With FINDIT, not only does it offer users an extensive catalogue of business listings in a wide range of categories, it also enables them to personally fill up the directory with businesses or services located near them and benefit other users at the same time. The contest provides users with an interactive and engaging platform to share information on great places around them, and at the same time be rewarded for it!”
To date, more than 1,800 photos have already been uploaded by users. One of those users is Sia Ming Choung from Perak, a photo contest winner who traveled from the West Coast to the East Coast of Malaysia and took over 200 photos of various locations.
“It was such a great feeling to finally receive my top up amount of RM208! I deliberately went to take photos around Lumut, Ayer Tawar, even at Kemaman, Terengganu. It was such a fun experience!” he said.
The FINDIT service, which is a partnership between Maxis and FINDIT Malaysia, offers users access to 185,000 business listings in over 2,500 categories, including location maps and driving directions. For Maxis customers, it is available for download and usage for free.
