In the Philippines, WeChat was launched last 2013 with brand ambassadors Drew Arellano and Iya Villania, who also taught Filipinos how seamless the social mobile app can fit into our local lifestyles by way of three television commercials (TVCs). The real-life partners showed us how they are able to stay connected despite their busy schedules via WeChat’s “Video Call”, “Hold To Talk”, and “Moments.”

This time around, WeChat is set to launch another TVC this May 2014 with the country’s top fashion influencer and the possibility of, surprise—YOU!

How to Become WeChat’s Next Star

To get a chance to be a part of this shoot, here’s all you have to do:

1. Take four selfies beginning today until early May, portraying the expressions: happy, angry, sad, and surprised and share those through “Moments.”

2. Take screenshots of your posts and send those to Facebook tagging @WeChat Philippines.

      Hehe yup same here. When WeChat first came out, one of the features that struck me most was the walkie talkie. It’s just so cool and different from traditional call and text methods of communication. It’s just like playing with a friend. 🙂 You’re welcome!

    This sounds like a fun competition but not something that i would personally join *LOL*, i hate seeing my silly face doing weird poses (that’s why you mainly only see one expression *according to my friends : mean expression* on all of the pictures in my blog) :p

      Hi Mindy! I always see you without a smile or teeth showing up. Is that already the mean express? I thought it’s just a candid straight or normal face. OK lah, I also don’t like doing silly faces and weird poses especially if these pictures will be sent out to public hihi.

      Yeah hehe I guess they are taking advantage of what’s trending now. Since many people are into taking pictures of themselves using their own camera, a mono pod has even evolved. Get the chance to also maximize this trend by joining the contest. It could be fun. 🙂

      I’ve watched that and initially I didn’t get it. I thought it’s quite a sad short video. But yeah, I feel the reality and it’s sinking in deeper and deeper every day as more people get into the web and lose their real social life.

    I’ve always loved WeChat! I’m so glad my friend recommended it to me and it’s just so much fun to use! I haven’t tried the moments app quite yet, but I’m definitely telling all the selfie addicts out there to check the contest out! Haha! 🙂

      So I’m guessing you’re not a selfie addict? Hmm this can be the opportunity to showcase your talent in making faces then. 😛 I use Moments rarely but I’ll check it out for myself this time for more explorations and discovery.

      WeChat is a communications tool that is installed in mobile phones. If you’re using a smart phone, feel free to download and install the app. It’s helpful and useful in most occasions.

    Selfie contest is really getting popular huh.. I will not be shocked if more other contest about selfie will emerge but if everybody is happy with that, and with all the prize given – good for them. Hehe

      Yup, it’s so easy to take selfies and monopods do help a lot in taking photos if you want to include more of the background. 🙂 This is a great deal for both end users and WeChat.

      I’m already excited and interested to see the submissions of users. It will be thrilling to judge and decide who’s going to be the winner as well! 🙂

      Yeah especially if you’re more of a mobile phone user, you now have to individually install the FB Messenger to chat with friends on FB. WeChat is another good option.

    I heard a lot of great reviews about WeChat. I don’t mind taking my own selfie but I don’t have WeChat account yet. I will do the surprised look.
