Show Malaysia Some Love with #MalaysiaPrihatin! Jabatan Penerangan Malaysia (JAPEN) Organises TikTok Contest in conjunction with Merdeka

In commemoration with the month of Merdeka and Malaysia, the Jabatan Penerangan Malaysia (JaPen) is inviting all Malaysians to show their love for the country via a rewarding contest held on the leading destination for short-form mobile videos, TikTok. Called the #MalaysiaPrihatin contest, the initiative aims to drive patriotism and positive inspiration while offering the opportunities for participants to win cash prizes up to RM1,500

“TikTok is thrilled to hold this meaningful contest on the platform. It’s been a tough year for a lot of us, but one thing for certain is that the spirit of Malaysia is still roaring within us. The TikTok platform has a vast community of Malaysian creators sharing a variety of videos with their creativity all while spreading positivity during these times. We hope that the #MalaysiaPrihatin challenge will motivate more Malaysian TikTok users to share their patriotic stories with other Malaysians while staying safe at home,” stated Darren Quek, TikTok Malaysia’s Strategy Operations Manager
