In May 2018, ASUS Philippines launched its PixelMaster Master Class campaign, which aims to develop the photography skills of budding ZenFone mobile users. To culminate and celebrate the success of the 8-month campaign, ASUS invites all Pixel Master Class students, ZenFans, and ZenFone mobile photographers to join the first-ever PixelMaster Grand Prix.
The PixelMaster Grand Prix is a nationwide photo marathon led by the respected and celebrated ZenFone PixelMasters. The roster of ZenFone experts include: Ricky Ladia for travel photography; Arlene Donaire for visual storytelling; Jasper Tejano for street photography; Emir Kahn Bautista for wedding photography; Dail Deri for conceptual photography; Ken Go for portraiture; Jay Ermitaño for documentary photography; and Nicco Valenzuela for landscape photography.
Grand Prix participants will have a chance to meet, greet, and learn from the ZenFone PixelMasters. The event is set to happen in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. It will begin April this year and is open to all ZenFone users and some lucky non-users as well.
Interested participants should first sign-up as an official member on the ASUS ZenTalk Forum and sign up at the official microsite. Participants must also indicate which leg they will join, as each run features a particular group of ASUS ZenFone PixelMasters.
ASUS will announce official list of qualified participants on April 22 via their official Facebook Page. During the marathon, participants must follow the theme announced on the day of each particular leg. The entries will be judged according to PixelMaster Scores (70%) and ASUS Score (30%).
The biggest ZenFone mobile photography event yet in Philippines, the PixelMaster Grand Prix rewards the winning participants of each leg with big rewards, with over P50,000.00 worth of prizes up for grabs. The third place takes home P5,000 cash, while the second place wins P5,000 cash and mobile photography accessories. ASUS will award the grand winner P15,000 cash. He/she will also bring home a DJI Osmo Mobile 2 and an all-expense paid local trip for one.
Registration is free and is open from March 6 to April 20, 2019. It already includes a marathon kit with special ZenFone merchandise for all chosen participants.
