Congrats to the WOW Amazing Asia Photo Contest Winners!

By Benette

I love winning prizes, don’t you? In a previous post, I introduced the WOW Amazing Asia Photo Contest to everyone- where you might be treated to a getaway in Bali or Bangkok just by submitting a photo entry on Koolred! The photo contest ran from 2-30 November 2010 and I hear that it’s by far the most successful Koolred contest yet. The contest garnered more than a thousand entries from all over the world.

A fantastic contest with loads of great works, it’s all come down to only three pieces and Koolred has announced the winners. So check it out!

1st Prize- Mar C

Caption: SAVE THE KIDS! : Save them from jumping into the Singapore River! (I tried.) Location: Singapore River, Singapore

WOW-tastic, isn’t it? Mar from Brunei Darussalam topped the list with her photo submission! The travel shot is creative and the photo caption is catchy at the same time. Mar does an impressive job of capturing the scenic beauty of the Singapore River as well as cheekily posing with the statues along the river bank. It’s no wonder she’s chosen to be rewarded with a pair of AirAsia return flights from Kuala Lumpur and a complimentary stay for two at the marvelous Ramayana Resort & Spa in Bali, Indonesia.

2nd Prize- Tan Wai Chung

Caption: i-L0ve~ i-City~1-Malaysia~

Tan’s spreading the LOVE as I am simply falling for this photo! This vibrantly vivid entry was one of the photos that truly grabbed my attention. The concept behind this photo is great too, as he took this photo in his very own country and linked the caption back to the location in which the photo was taken in. I wonder which one of his buddies will be accompanying him to his Thailand trip that he’s won for this entry. He also wins return flights to Bangkok from Kuala Lumpur and a complimentary stay in the Bangkok Palace Hotel.

3rd Prize- Grace Balacdao

Caption: Quenching my thirst at Merlion Park, Singapore.

Not forgetting 3rd Prize winner, active Redster Grace whose Merlion photo submission won her a complimentary hotel stay in 1Borneo Tune Hotels in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia. Her simple yet brilliant photo is a great travel shot and it’s clever too as Grace really does look like she’s “quenching her thirst”- thanks to the Merlion!
