PROTON Holdings Berhad (PROTON) launched the “Nama Siapa Hebat” contest, inviting Malaysians around the country to contribute to name its upcoming, all-new compact car.
The contest, which begins today, ends on 25 July 2013. The Grand Prize winner will win the Premium version of the new model, while other attractive prizes also include holiday packages, cash prizes and electrical gadgets worth more than RM120,000.
According to the Executive Chairman of PROTON, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Haji Mohd Khamil Jamil, the new model is expected to be introduced to the Malaysian public in the first half of 2014. “We are the national automotive car company, so it is only right this is shared together with the rest of the country and all Malaysians. It is only right that the Malaysian public share our pride and play a significant part in naming the new Proton car.”
“This new compact car is extremely stylish, and is targeted to those from all walks of life who love an active lifestyle, from the young to the old, to even those wishing to upgrade up from a smaller vehicle,” he added.
All Malaysians from the age of 12 and above with a Malaysian identity card are eligible to participate in the “Nama Siapa Hebat” contest. For the entry to qualify, all names submitted must be in Bahasa Malaysia containing no more than six (6) letters. The name may be in alphabets or a combination of alpha numeric, but cannot be all numeric. The proposed name must also not have any association with the animal kingdom. All entries must be supported with a rationale for the name.
Participants can submit as many entries as possible, either via mail, or online at the namasiapahebat.proton.com website. Forms for the “Nama Siapa Hebat” contest are available at PROTON Service Centres nationwide.
