The Proton Saga ‘Snap & Win’ Photo Contest with the theme ‘Ease your Life’ is one of the activities that Proton Edar have planned in conjunction with Proton’s 25th Anniversary celebration.

The contest is broken down into 2 categories – Old Saga and New Saga. The Old Saga category includes the 85-91 Saga, 92-08 Iswara and the 03-08 Saga. And of course for the New Saga category, all new Saga of all specs can join.

Basically what you have to do is snap an original and creative photo of yourself or your family with any Proton Saga and submit the entry online at the Saga Snap & Win microsite, or via snail mail (address can be found below). You also have to submit a creative caption to describe how the Saga have eased their life in less than 140 words.

There is no purchase required and you don’t even have to own a Proton Saga to join. You can use your neighbour’s, friend’s or family’s Proton Saga. Each person is allowed to submit a maximum of 5 entries but of course you can only win once. I’m probably going to try to join using Danny’s old Proton Saga ;)

The criteria to win is 70% judging and 30% public voting. The judging will be based on relevance, originality and creativity among other judging criteria. The following are the prizes:

Old Saga New Saga
Grand Prize RM25,000 Grand Prize RM25,000
1st Runner Up RM8,000 1st Runner Up RM8,000
2nd Runner Up RM5,000 2nd Runner Up RM5,000
Consolation (10) RM1,000 Consolation (10) RM1,000

There is also a reward for public voters who consistently voted for the grand prize, 1st runner up prize and 2nd runner up prize. Each individual can vote once a day for their preferred finalist. There’s three prizes to be won – RM2,500, RM2,000 and RM1,000 for the voter category.
