Fun times, fab deals
Singapore's first talent search for social media influencers, I Can Be An Influencer, seeks to discover new rising talents and nurture the next generation of social media personalities.
Attractive prizes await the top three winners, with a total cash prize of $15,000. On top of that, one participant from the Top 10 entries will be awarded a three-year endorsement contract worth $100,000 by Gain City, the presenter of the inaugural contest.
Shortlisted participants will create a 30-second video based on one of five categories (beauty, F&B, entertainment, travel and technology) and will also receive mentorship from industry veterans such as make-up guru Kelvin Lao Shi and Power 98 DJ Dee Kosh.
The top 10 will be chosen based on the engagement level of their entries on social media platforms, and will vie for the top three places by creating creative brand content to market selected products live at the grand finals on Nov 10.
I Can Be An Influencer is now open to Singaporeans and Singapore Permanent Residents aged 18 and above living in Singapore. Log on to www.influencerssg.com for more information.
