#DiscoverWithAlpha Instagram Photo Contest

Sony Alpha Series Instagram Photo Contest


The everyday life for many creators around the world have been drastically changing over the past few months---some of us may be honing their indoor photography skills or exploring their own backyard, while others may be preparing to travel locally for the first time or going on their first trip of the year. While it is clear things are constantly changing, the one thing that remains the same is that discovery and creativity is at the core of everything we do. Despite the changing environments, let’s stay connected as a community by sharing what we have all been discovering, learning, and creating with Sony Alpha cameras! #DiscoverWithAlpha

As such, Sony Malaysia Sdn.Bhd. is holding an Instagram “#DiscoverWithAlpha” photo contest for the users of Sony α series cameras.
Take part in this contest by sharing your photos through Instagram.
Entries will be judged based on the level of creativity, originality and visual/emotional impact of the image and the winning entries will be announced on Sony group websites and social media channels.

Winning photos selected in Malaysia will also be entered for a global contest and global winners will be selected among entries from all over the world.
Submit your photos and stand a chance to win fantastic prizes!
