CEGAH Video Competition

Press Release


The Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation (MCPF) has launched Cegah, a video contest to gather tips from the public on reducing crime.

The increasing number of smartphones and digital devices has made it easy for every individual to become an amateur film maker and to share his or her ideas on how to reduce crime and make the country a safer one for everyone.

MCPF believes that by involving the rakyat in its effort to curb crime, it will be able to gather a more comprehensive list of tips and at the same time, increase awareness of the importance of crime prevention. Cegah will also serve to highlight that the public too has a crucial role to play when it comes to preventing crimes from happening.

The Foundation is specially seeking to involve youths in its efforts due to their comfort with technology and their inherent creativity.

The contest has a dedicated website www.cegah.my and taking part is easy. Participants just need to shoot their tips on video and upload it. Participants are required to share the video on Facebook 50 times to qualify for the contest. This ensures that the videos with the tips become viral.

Attractive prizes worth a total of RM100,000 are to be won.

The 1st prize is RM 50,000 of RM25,000 cash and camera equipment worth RM 25,000; the 2nd prize is worth RM 20,000 with cash of RM10,000 and camera equipment worth RM10,000; while the 3rd prize is worth RM 10,000 of RM5,000 cash and camera equipment worth RM5,000.

There are also 20 consolation prizes, each with camera equipment worth RM1,000.

The contest starts from 29th March 2015 and ends on 29th May 2015. Winners will be announced in June 2015.
