…. They say a picture tells a thousand words. We launched this contest with Sony to showcase how travel experiences can be told in amazing ways visually no matter what the budget – either through a smartphone or with the best camera equipment in the market. We are searching for someone who explores any AirAsia destination and shares their favourite travel moments far and wide. AirAsia X Group Head of Commercial Barry Klipp
He commented that AirAsia X has demonstrated commitment to innovation and technology and this Sony partnership will help inspire travellers to share their travel experiences wherever AirAsia flies.
…. Due to the increase of smartphones penetration in the market, passion for photography has advanced rapidly in a few short years. People have started taking more aesthetic travel photos, which connect (thanks to social platforms) with complete strangers across the world. Sony, as the worldwide leader in Digital Imaging and the world’s largest image sensor manufacturer, we are confident of continuing to lead the way forward, to a wider spectrum of travel photographers, from hobbyist to enthusiast. In collaboration with AirAsia, we believe we can keep the inspiration chain alive and people will start capturing the beauty of everyday life through their lens. Sony Malaysia MD Satoru Arai
