The members of the Association of Hotel Public Relations Professionals (HHPB) are joining forces to October a very special month for kids living on or visiting the island of Bali.
To celebrate the HHPB's 4th anniversary, the association is sponsoring a series of children's competitions titled "Me & My God," giving young people the chance to compete for medals and prizes. Funds raised by HHPB in the course of the event will be shared among needy rural primary schools in Bali.
Three Separate Events
Under the theme of "Me & My God," HHPB will host three distinct competitions in the areas of photography, painting, and poetry reading.
The first competition in the area of photography is open to junior and amateur photographers below the age of 30. Final submissions must be sent to Ms. Adrayani, Public Relations Manager of the Kuta Paradiso Hotel before October 20, 2002. Entries must be a minimum size of 10R, in either black & white or color. Judges are drawn from the ranks of professional photographers and photo editors.
Children's Painting Competition
A Children's Painting Competition will be held on October, 6, 2002 at the Hotel Padma Bali.
Poetry Reading Competition
The final of the three events sponsored by HHPB will be a Poetry Reading Competition & Speech Contest scheduled for October 27, 2002 at the Kuta Paradiso Hotel.
Anatasia Lijadi, HHPB Chairwoman, commented, "Our goal is to launch a book entitled 'Me & My God,' based on the photos, paintings, and poems we gather from the competitions." The organization will be working together with a local publisher to realize the book with funds generated by the books' sales to be donated to needy primary schools in Bali's rural areas.
Established in 1999, HHPB has 28 members from 26 hotels across Bali.
Chairman and Vice Chairman of HHPB for the period 2002-2003 are, respectively, Anastasia Lijadi from the Bali Hyatt and Deddy Sasmita of the Hard Rock Hotel Bali.
