Remember The Papercup Challenge? I submitted the idea for the Genovasi Challenge but my team and I was only able to win the honorable mention, in which we won RM 5,000.00.
Now here comes The Big Dre1m by TV3 and IM4U initiative. The Big Dre1m concentrates on more challenging issues in Malaysia, be it on social, economy, technology and other aspects. We submitted our proposal to the competition and we were with hopes to be selected as one of the finalists.
We made it through the first round and became among the top 15 of the finalists who needed to undergo the 2nd round where out of 15, only 6 was chosen. So my team (Azalia and Yushasnor, both geologists by education) and I went to Sri Pentas, Bandar Utama for the project pitching and judging session. The judges were Datuk Jake Abdullah (best known as Jakeman), Moots Pop Shuvit, Altimet, Noh Salleh and Michael Teo. The hosts were Naz and Sazzy Falak.
Here are some pictures from the event:
Good news. We were chosen as the best 6 contestants and we will be presenting before the Prime Minister of Malaysia on the 22nd of March 2013. Catch us on TV3 this 8th March at 7.30pm on the first episode of The Big Dre1m!
