PixelMaster Grand Prix Mechanics

In order to join, participants would need to follow these instructions:

Interested participants would need to sign up as an official member on the ASUS ZenTalk forum. Once joined, participants must then sign up at the official microsite. You would also need to indicate which leg you would be joining as each run will be led by a certain group of ASUS ZenFone Pixel Masters:

  • Manila Leg – April 27
  • Cebu Leg – May 4
  • Davao Leg – May 5

Participants are only eligible to win the main prizes if they are ZenFone users. However, limited slots will be opened to non-ZenFone users who will get to successfully register. These non-ZenFone users will be lent a ZenFone, but they will only be eligible to win the minor prizes.

ASUS Philippines will be filtering the participants who have successfully signed-up due to the limited slots available for each leg. Shortlisted participants will be messaged via SMS and Email as early as April 5, 2019. Shortlisted participants are then given until April 12, 2019 to re-confirm their availability on the leg day. No confirmation means forfeiture of slot/s.

ASUS Philippines will be releasing the official list of participants for each leg by April 22, 2019 via the ASUS Philippines Facebook and Instagram accounts. Official participants will also be receiving an SMS from an ASUS representative.

A theme will be announced on the day of the scheduled Grand Prix, which participants must follow. Each leg will have their own theme. Participants will be given the freedom to roam anywhere on their own during the photo walk-proper.

Participants must submit their chosen photos within the day of the official leg. Entries will only be eligible if:
