KFC CELEBRATES WINNERS OF SEHATI SEJIWA BERSAMA SCHAWAL CONTEST

It was a night filled with fun and entertainment as KFC celebrated over 100 of its fans in a Merdeka themed party. Amongst them were 30 shortlisted participants of the KFC Sehati Sejiwa Bersama Schawal online photo contest. Also present were Senior General Manager, KFC Marketing, Angelina Villanueva, John Warkey, Deputy General Manager, KFC Marketing as well as Malaysia’s favourite celebrity couple Scha Alyahya and Awal Ashaari.

The contest which ran from 1st August until 3rd September 2015 received an overwhelming amount of entries. Through this contest, contestants were required to take an artistic picture of themselves or in a group with their food orders purchased through KFC Delivery (hotline: 1300-222-888 or website: www.kfcdelivery.com.my). The pictures also needed to creatively embody the meaning of “Sehati Sejiwa” and what it means to them. Contestants were then required to upload the picture on their personal Instagram or Facebook page or KFC Malaysia’s Facebook page with the hashtags #KFCdelivery #SehatiSejiwa. Winners were then chosen based on their creativity and originality in showcasing the product in the picture and slogan.
 “We are thrilled with the response to this contest. KFC customers are spontaneously creative and truly embody Malaysia's patriotic spirit," said Angelina Villanueva, Senior General Manager, KFC Marketing.

“As a brand that celebrates bringing people together, we are privileged to be part of their lives,” she added.
10 lucky winners, picked from 30 shortlisted participants, were selected based on the best photos. Afanddy Bin Hushni was the lucky Grand Prize winner who won RM1,500.00 in cash while Khairuddin Muhammad won RM 1,300.00 as the First Runner Up, and Zarith Nadiah Binti Zulkefli won RM1,000.00 as the Second Runner Up. Seven other consolation winners walked home with RM200.00 in cash each.

“I’m happy, especially for my children. They are very excited to be here,” said Affandy Bin Hushni who won Grand Prize. Looking forward to more contest from KFC and KFC Delivery, Afanddy said he would never miss an opportunity like this.

“My wife and I have always loved eating KFC even since we were kids, and now our children love it. It was this thought that inspired me to enter this contest,” said Khairuddin Muhammad who came all the way from Johor Bahru to attend the event with his wife and two children.

Meanwhile, the Second Runner up, Zarith Nadiah Binti Zulkefli was so overwhelmed and delighted at winning the prize. “I have to say I was not expecting to win as all of the entries were so amazing. But I am so thankful,” she said.
It was definitely a night to remember not only for the winners but also all that were present.  Lots of fun activities took place including lucky draw, face painting, fun games, mingling with the celebrities, photo booth and of course lots of delicious KFC chicken! With the many prizes, goodie bags, and giveaways, everyone was happy and no one went home empty handed.
