Mobilink announces winners of Blog pad competition

Lahore: Mobilink has announced Farrukh Zafar as the winner of the first Mobilink Blog pad, the first blogging competition in Pakistan. The Mobilink Blog pad was the first digital media initiative challenging the creativity and critical thinking prowess of bloggers from across the country.

The Mobilink Blog pad is a series of interactive events, which will engage Pakistan’s online community. The first competition started an online dialogue on the role played by Mobilink and partners HTC in the evolution of smart phones in Pakistan.

The Blog pad generated a lot of interest from Pakistan’s online community, with multiple entries vying for the top prize of an HTC Sensation Handset. In addition bloggers were also awarded for their unique usage of content and visuals on their respective blogs.

Omar Manzur, Director Public Relations and CSR, Mobilink emphasized, “Mobilink has always been at the forefront of engaging Pakistan’s online media community, and the Mobilink Blog pad competition is a continuation of our initiative to encourage and nurture creativity in the online domain.

I would like to congratulate all the winners of the first Mobilink Blog pad competition, and thank all the participants for their enthusiasm.”

As part of Mobilink’s initiative to ensure transparency in the competition process, all entries were judged by an independent panel of judges representing organizations such as P@SHA, CIO Pakistan, Google Pakistan and HTC.
