By Benette

It didn’t take them long to bring back the buzz on Koolred! The travel and lifestyle social networking site has just launched the Koolred Colourful Photo Contest and are craving for colourful, creative and interesting photos!

Wanna know how you can enter to win? Let me tell you in five simple steps:

1. Be a Koolred member aged 18 and above. If you’re not a member yet, this is the perfect excuse to become a Redster. You can easily sign up via Twitter or Facebook as well.

2. Upload a colourful photo based on one or more of these tags: Animals, Entertainment, Festival & Events, Food & Drink, Kids, Lifestyle, Music, People, Sports & Auto, Technology and Travel.

3. Include a catchy caption in English that should not only describe the photo but state the location and country in which the photo was captured.

Your amazingly colourful photograph is not limited to any specific location too. Show everyone how you see the world in ‘colour’.

Photo Caption: There is light at the end! What an intensely contrasted golden-grey sunset in Perth, Australia!

4. Answer the three questions below correctly:
a. Name two attractions in Guangzhou.
b. What was Kochi formerly known as?
c. Name one place to shop in Myanmar.

Don’t worry – they tell you (on the contest page) where to go to get the answers.

5. Lastly, you want your friends to click on the “Kool” icon to vote for your photo entry. The number of “Kool” Likes increases your chances of winning too. You can spread more awareness for your entry by sharing it on Twitter and Facebook. Do stay active on Koolred and update your profile too.

See? It’s as easy as that!

Now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for, let’s find out what Koolred will be bringing to the table this time. Well, all I can say is that they have tonnes to give away! The 1st Prize winner will win free flights to Guangzhou, China; 2nd Prize winner will be flown to Kochi, India and lastly, 3rd Prize winner will win flights to Myanmar. Apart from the main prize winners, there will be a whopping 47 Consolation Prize winners who will each win exclusive AirAsia merchandises as well.

I think it’s great that Koolred came up with such a fun photo contest where people can show off their creative skills. Kudos to AirAsia too for their generous support and sponsor for the amazing prizes!

It’ll be a thrill to see all the interesting contest entries on Koolred! You may submit more than one entry to the Koolred Colourful Photo Contest but make sure they’re in by 26 August 2011.
