It’s widely known that President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo likes to give away bicycles as presents. This time, his Instagram followers will get a chance to win one of the bicycles.
On Monday, the President invited his followers on Instagram to join a photo contest to celebrate Indonesia’s 74th Independence Day anniversary.
Titled #74IndonesiaMaju Potret Merdeka, the contest will give away 25 gift prizes, including eight bicycles.
“Is your neighborhood celebrating Independence Day? Don’t keep it to yourself. Take a picture and upload it onto Instagram. There are a variety of prizes waiting for several lucky winners,” read a post on his Instagram account.
The competition is open to all of Jokowi’s Instagram followers and photos must be submitted before 12 p.m. on Aug. 19.
Participants are allowed to upload more than one photo, but all posts must include the hashtag #74IndonesiaMaju and tag the President through his account @Jokowi.
The uploaders of four photos with the highest number of likes and four photos chosen by a panel of judges will receive a bicycle. The judges will also choose 17 photos to win other prizes.
The winners will be announced on Aug. 30. (jes/kes)
