TBWA Kuala Lumpur launches Instagram photo competition for Corbis Images

KUALA LUMPUR – TBWA\Kuala Lumpur has launched an Instagram Photo competition to help Corbis Images promote their image library services in Malaysia.

Targeted at creative types working within the advertising and design industry, the five-week-long Corbis Contract photo competition was created as a way of showcasing the depth and accuracy of Corbis’s image search capabilities whilst engaging a rapport with them.

Leading advertising agencies in Kuala Lumpur were sent a packages containing instructions on how to take part in the photo competition using a specially design Corbis Image frame. Each week a different photo theme (or photo contract) would be revealed on the Corbis Contract Instagram page (#corbiscontract).


Budding ‘contract photographers’ would then do their best to interpret the photo criteria in the most creative manner possible. Photos would then be uploaded onto Instagram and open to public voting, with the highest vote getter for each contract winning prizes ranging from cash, movie tickets to Starbucks vouchers.

A grand prize of camera will also be offered for those participating in the final week participate and have at least two previous photo submissions for earlier weeks.

The competition received 135 submissions alone for its first week’s contract.

“We are thrilled to work with TBWA\ Kuala Lumpur,” said Clara Williams,Sales Director for Click Photos (the exclusive representative for Corbis in Singapore, Indonesia, India and Malaysia). “The campaign’s objective was to reach out to our clients – who are mainly creative users – in a fun way, but also to communicate that Corbis provides an amazing breadth and depth in our collection apart from accurate search results. The contest is a fun and relevant way to engage with our core audience (creative) and on a platform that provides instant feedback within the users and community.”

The competition runs until the end of this week, Friday, August 15.
