Community Project: Philips Innovation That Matters To You Contest

UPDATE: GOOD NEWS! Philips has decided to extend the contest to the public till 24th of November, so hurry up and join to win some EXCITING prizes! <3

Have you ever joined a contest that is not only beneficial to you, but to the environment as well? Well, I first heard about the Philips Innovation That Matters To You Contest from The Butterfly Project Malaysia. It is a contest for anyone to submit their ideas for healthier homes, or safer cities. To quote Tammy, bloggers should use the power of social media to reach out to others and in this case, don't you think the project is very meaningful and is worth joining?

Have you ever felt like you're not living healthily enough? Or, I'm sure everyone of us feels this, that Malaysia is getting more and more unsafe to live in? It's like....

You know, we all do mope around and complain about it, but there's nothing that we have really done or can do about certain issues. But Philips is giving us an opportunity to give back and contribute our ideas to the community now! LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD. /throws confetti

How does it work?

It is actually very simple. All you gotta do is log on to and select between 'Healthier Homes' or 'Safer Cities'.

Click on 'Contribute an Idea'. Make sure you write within 500 characters! Your idea can be anything, be it an activity or an invention, just let the world know!

After you have keyed in your ideas and submitted your details, your idea will be recorded! You can choose to share your ideas to Facebook or Twitter. Here's mine:

Carparks not only look eerie with inadequate lighting, but can invite danger too. A well-lit carpark with a built in alarm system in the bulbs could reduce crime rates, I feel.

Don't worry if you're stuck though. Scroll to the bottom of the page to read more of other people's ideas and get an idea on what YOU feel needs to be improved. Some of the ideas are actually really good! Alternatively, you can share the link and ask your friends to think with/ for you. In fact, share it more and get more people to join!

Just remember though, there are a few criterias when submitting your idea. You can submit as many as you want but it has to be:
  • Realistic - it must be practical to implement.
  • Sustainable  - it should demonstrate long term viability.
  • Benefit many, not a few - the more people it benefits the better your chance of having your idea implemented.

Oh, what's there to be won, you ask? Some amazing prizes, of course! Philips is so generous.

Grand Prize for Winning Idea:
1 unit of Philips Viva Collection Airfryer (worth RM1199.00)
1 unit of Philips Viva Collection ME Computerized Electric Pressure Cooker (worth RM499.00)

5 Consolation Prizes for Shortlisted Entries:
1 unit of Philips Living Colors Bloom Black (worth RM499.00)
1 unit of Philips RaGa MP3 Player (worth RM169.00)


It's never too late ro share your ideas, just make sure your ideas have the well-being of the community in mind! Cheers :)
