Canon Brings the Fun Closer to Fans
Canon also engaged more than 20,000 visitors to various Canon touch points at Asian Games with a number of #bringingyoucloser and #CanonAsianGames18 activities. The 180-degree Super Fan booth at the Canon booth in Kaka Zone was highly popular and more than 9,000 visitors to the Canon booth gamely took their own Asian Games action shots. In addition, the Canon Touch and Trial booths at the Istora (badminton), Aquatic and Basketball venue enabled fans and visitors to zoom closer to the competition action from a vantage point.
In particular, visitors to Istora (badminton) were also surprised with Canon premiums. A highlight of the Canon Day program, all fans could try their luck in a fun and easy ‘match and win’ competition open to all who had their cameras with them.
Get Closer Photo Competition
Fans who are unable to attend the Games usually experience the passion and excitement of the event through compelling and powerful photos and videos. To celebrate the spirit of sportsmanship and unity during the 18th Asian Games, Canon invited everyone to get in on the action with the #CanonAsianGames18 Asia-wide Instagram photo competition hosted by @CanonAsia, which closed on 2 September.
A judging panel comprising professional photographers will be shortlisting and deliberating the entries. The three best photos will be announced soon and winners may look forward to winning the top grand prizes – a Canon EOS 80D kit, a Canon EOS M50 kit, and a PowerShot G7 X Mark II respectively. The three most popular photos will walk away with a Canon SELPHY CP1300 printer each.
