STF Launches Short Video Competition

| Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

The Sarawak Tourism Federation (STF) launched their two short video competitions, the “Indie Video Competition” and “Instagram Video Upload Competition,” today at 2.00pm at the Sarawak Tourism Board (STB) office, in collaboration with STB and in conjunction with the Visit Sarawak Campaign.

Participants stand a chance to win RM10,000 for the Indie Video Competition and RM1,500 for the Instagram Video Upload Competition, with both competitions will require videos of maximum 3 mintes for the Indie Video Competition and 60 seconds for the Instagram Video Competition.

The videos will be centered around the theme of the Visit Sarawak Campaign, which is “Sarawak – More to Discover,” which aims to show the world that there is so much more to see, do, eat, and to experience in Sarawak, and so this could include Culture, Adventure, Nature, Food and Festival, and many more.

The Indie Video Competition is open to the general public, targeting amateur video-makers and especially Sarawakians, and can be entered individually or as a team of up to 5 members, with a maximum of 3 entries.

A winning video will be selected by a panel of judges and used to promote Sarawak both internationally and domestically, with the two runner-ups will also be accorded cash prizes of RM 5,000 and RM 3,000.
