Shizens Awards Prizes for Stand Firm Stay Firm Photography Contest


It was out of passion for photography and interest in the subject that I participated in this contest. And guess what? I was one of the lucky winners.

Shizens Time Resistance Essence STAND FIRM STAY FIRM


In April, so that was around 3 months ago, Shizens proudly launched their Stand Firm Stay Firm photography campaign. The “Stand Firm Stay Firm” campaign aims to display the outer beauty of women while also revealing their inner strength, which serves as an encouragement for them to stand firm within our society. It was an online contest where customers and fans stood a chance to win prizes by expressing their creativity through photos that display inner strength and outer beauty.

Hundreds of people submitted entries for the campaign, both for mobile photography and photography enthusiasts. And in the end, 10 finalists were selected/voted from each category that vied for grand and consolation prizes. I was so happy when I learned that I was one of the 10 finalists under photography enthusiasts.

My entry for Shizens Stand Firm Stay Firm Contest

My entry was this photo of myself with my precious son. I had a great time taking this photo with him, as he was very participative and supportive of what I was asking him to do. 

Shizens announced the final results early in June and I was one of them! My photo landed as First Runner Up. Wee!

Winners were invited for a prize-awarding session last weekend. Held at Shizens flagship store in Level 6 of Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, the awarding of prizes included photo ops with Shizens brand manager and time for us to explore skincare and cosmetics at the store.

 So what did I get as the First Runner Up?
  • RM1,000 cash prize as shown on the mock certificate above
  • RM800 cash voucher from Shizens
  • RM500 cash voucher from Flissco photo studio


The first thing I did was splurge on Shizens products, of course! I had RM800 to spend and I was more than happy to pick my choices. Well, I’m already in love with some of their products so I knew what to pick. And here’s my Shizens haul:

I was very much intrigued by the foundation and I was more than happy to finally get a chance to test it. The name is very interesting and that white swirl of moisturizing nutrient visible on the foundation really makes it eye catchy. Must try!

Thanks once again to Shizens and to my friends and families who supported my son and me.

Shizens Photography Contest - GRAND PRIZE Winner
