Upload your picture

Snap your photos (you can use any camera you choose, including your DSLR / phone. And yes, you CAN edit your photos before uploading)

Type Your Captions

Up to 100 words per photo are encouraged but are not compulsory. Captions can be in Bahasa Malaysia or English.

Hastag & Tag

Hastag #AYAcontest2015 and tag @plfperdana. For each photo, identify the series order and category. E.g: c1s1 for age group category 1 ( 13 - 17 Years old ) and the first photo in the series:c1s2 for the second photo, etc. This can be either as a seperate hastag or in your caption space.

Remember: It's a photo-essay so we are looking for a series of photographs and not single photos! It's 3 - 5 photographs for 13 to 17 year olds and 5 - 7 photographs for 18 -21 year olds. You can submit as many photo-essays as you wish but don't forget to hastag #AYAcontest2015 and tag @plfperdana! For tips on how to compose a stunning photo-essay, read our articles here.
