The recently concluded Aver Awards Fun with Photography Carnival 2011 held from 26 September to 2 October 2011was a successful event, with the visitors having good time along with their families. Many visitors had fantastic bargains and quite a few were seen leaving with Panasonic TVs. Those who brought their children along were equally impressed by popcorn and cotton candy stations as well as balloons and sticker colouring booths setup courtesy of Aver Awards Sdn Bhd. The main highlight of the whole event were surely the model shooting contest.
Total of 6 models strutted their stuff on stage wearing fashion apparel supplied by online fashion house www.iwearsin.com. Total of 50 contestants who were gunning for the top three prizes of RM 3,000, RM 1,500 and RM 500 cash vouchers. They were all too happy when the main shooting area was cordoned off specially for them, allowing them to freely move about unrestricted instead of being crammed like sardines in typical model shooting contests. Apart from the top 3 winners, 10 consolation winners also walked away with an exclusive Aver Awards photography vest. The top 3 winners are Lim Wee Giap, followed by Ng Choy Loi and Ah Kheng Chong. A few female shooters walked away with consolation prizes too, indicating the emergence of strong female contenders among this male-dominated hobby.
Amid the loud music spun by DJ Rohan, the mess of popped balloons, strewn popcorn and candy floss, and the colorful mess left behind by eager kids at the sticker coloring station, we would like to thank all participants and visitors to the Carnival. Looking forward t a bigger and more exciting event net year!
