Four Participants of Hotlink's Akademi Fantasia Instagram Auditions Make It To This Year's Top 16
Hotlink is pleased to announce that four participants who took part in ‘Ujibakat Insta AF2015 Bersama Hotlink’ were successfully selected as part of this year’s top 16 contestants.*
Participants who successfully made it through the Instagram auditions earned an ‘express pass’ to the second level auditions in KL, which was held on 30 and 31 May. Hotlink received more than 5,000 submissions for the Instagram auditions, which included submissions during the roadshow auditions as well as submissions sent directly via Instagram using the hashtag #hotlinkAF2015.
As the telco sponsor of AF 2015, Hotlink had earlier launched its ‘Ujibakat Insta AF2015 Bersama Hotlink’, which gave customers the opportunity to record their pre-audition via Instagram at a special roadshow that took place in Kuantan, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching beginning 18 April. Hotlink provided internet connectivity during the auditions so that its customers were able to submit their auditions via the social media platform, and get one step closer to realising their dreams.
“The Internet is such a powerful tool. Not only are we able to use it to reach a large audience, but it also enables us to bring AF closer to those who may not have had the opportunity to showcase their talents through traditional audition processes. Through our ‘Ujibakat Insta AF2015 Bersama Hotlink’, we introduced a new and exciting way of enabling customers to take part in this year’s auditions. We are thrilled that four of those participants made it to the Top 16, and we are rooting for them to go all the way!” said Navin Manian, Maxis’ Head of Prepaid, Consumer Business.
