Huawei, the number one smartphone brand in Sri Lanka, introduced an exciting new photography competition entitled ‘Beautiful Sri Lanka’ as a platform for Huawei users to showcase their photographic eye and their talent. The contest is open to all Facebook users and can be accessed through https://www.facebook.com/notes/huawei-mobile/huawei-beautiful-sri-lanka-photography-competition/2013085655457184/.

The theme under which this photography competition is carried out is ‘Sceneries of Beautiful Sri Lanka’. All aspiring mobile photographers with a passion for capturing the tantalizing beauty of nature have the opportunity to enlist themselves into the competition and win special prizes from Huawei. 

Participants simply have to capture their best photographs with a Huawei smartphone and share the photograph publicly on Facebook copyrighted with its watermark as well as utilising the hashtags #ReWriteTheRulesOfPhotography#HuaweiSriLanka between the period of 28 March and 24 May. Subsequently, participants can inbox the link to the picture, along with their name, contact number and IMEI number of the Huawei smart device. A panel of judges will then select the top 20 finalists of the competition.

Speaking about the new concept, Country Head Peter Liu stated: “Sri Lanka is a nation blessed with abundant blessings from its people to nature and a unique culture. We envision this competition would not only reward aspiring photographers but also it is aimed at developing the mobile photography culture in the nation and also to help these photographers to progress themselves into professionals.”

The winner of the contest will be awarded a brand new Huawei P30 Lite, while the other prizes include five Huawei Watch GTs, 10 Freebuds and consolation gifts for the finalists.

Huawei would like to invite all customers who own a Huawei device with the passion for photography to log on to Facebook, enlist themselves into the Beautiful Sri Lanka and win exciting prizes.

Recently Colombo was voted as the must -photograph travel destination of 2019. The Huawei commissioned research of over 1.3 million social media posts found the city of Colombo is the location travellers most want to take a picture of celebrating the new P Series launch in Sri Lanka.
