The Canon Selfie Star Search is over!
And the winner is …
Canon EOS M10 recently launched a Selfie Star Search Contest. Participants were asked to capture their selfies and upload them on Instagram with creative captions, hashtag #m10selfiestarsearch and the tag @canoncameramsia.
The Canon EOS M10 Selfie Star Search Contest was facilitated by individual participants as well as Canon’s M10 Selfie Star Search Selfie Squad. The Selfie Squad canvassed a wide variety of trendy cafes, college campuses and university hangouts to find the perfect candidates. Coming from varied backgrounds, the ultimate element that each participating candidate had in common is their love for photography, especially perfecting the art of the selfie.
All unique and engaging, each individual participant took to Instagram and Facebook with high ambition, intense creativity and flair to showcase their selfie style, inspiration and photography skills. The combined aspects came together to comprise each participant’s individual story.
Journey to Become the Face of the Canon EOS M10
Competition was fierce…
Finishing in mid-May, the Canon EOS M10 Selfie Star Search Contest has been no easy feat. Competition was fierce, and contest hopefuls had to think out of the box in terms of captivating the audience with their selfie style. During the competition’s finals, each participant was gauged and critiqued by an influential panel of judges including Sandy Lee from Canon Marketing Malaysia, Joseph Lee from Lunch Communications, guest celebrity judge Jessy Chee and our very own Wendy from Pop Culture.
From the many entries, the judges chose 10 bubbly and expressive finalists. These 10 selfie diehards were then given a make-over for a professional fashion photography shoot with the likes of Guess, Zara, Bershka and Pull & Bear outfitting them before being given a Canon EOS M10 digital camera each.
After a fun and informative product training exercise, the top 10 selfie finalists were then asked to take a variety of pictures in their classic selfie style in order to post them up on the social media channels of Facebook and Instagram with the purpose of sharing their story and highlighting their individual journey during the Canon EOS M10 Selfie Star Search Contest.
