tamiyablog competition – win an RC Tamiya Sand Rover 2011

 

Also a new photo of the “put it together – I believe in advertisement” campaign

 

Siam Tamiya, a model kits company in Thailand, has had its 2011 calendar recognised with a new set of awards with the Grand Prix for Design at the Spikes Asia creative advertising festival, following on from a Gold Design Lion at Cannes in June. Tamiya wanted to seize the New Year as an occasion to connect and build a lasting bond with its customers and so developed a wall calendar that could be turned into twelve modeling kits to be assembled and displayed for others to see. Each month customers would look forward to the day they could start on the new project. As a premium gift, the calendar pulled more customers into the stores during the holiday season. It created not only brand exposure but also brand interaction throughout the year, and became a bounding tool that strengthened the connection between the brand and modeling enthusiasts.

 

The Tamiya Calendar campaign was developed at Creative Juice, Bangkok (TBWA), Thailand, by chief creative officer/art director/graphic designer Thirasak Tanapatanakul, graphic designers Tienchutha Rukhavibul, Manasit Imjai, Chalermpun Punjamapirom, Nitipong Tancharoen, Kingkanok Munkongcharoen, Kantaphat Witwasin, Irada Sribyatta, Chittiporn Chittapootti, Manamai Rodpetch, Sermpan Bunyalumlerk.

Update 14.11.2011: Competition results posted

Update 1.11.2011: Competition is closed now, results will be posted on 14th November.

Exactly 5 years and 299 posts ago this blog was started by a small group of Tamiya fans to gather interesting information about our favourite company in one place, but we never thought it would be such a success with over one million page views in this time. Therefore we would like to thank you for your continuous and growing support, Tamiya INC. for keeping up releasing an enormous amount of superb new models and thus keeping us busy building and reporting about them as well as all other sites who sent or allowed us to use their material. In the past years we have received several offers to get sponsors and add advertisements, but we declined and decided to pay all the running costs ourselves to guarantee being as neutral and objective as possible. Something we hope you appreciate.

 

For the celebration of the 5 first years, we decided to give a new Sand Rover kit (also paid by ourselves) as the original version was released almost exactly 30 years ago (22nd August 1981) and also 5 years after Tamiya’s first RC-car and also because of being kit number 58500. To participate, please send only one of your own made Tamiya related photos or drawings (maximum size 300 kilobytes) together with your full name, age and country to the address shown in the below picture until the 31st October 2011. The team of tamiyablog will choose and present the entries they liked the most on 14th November 2011 and one of them will win the 58500 Sand Rover kit. The kit will be shipped to the winner’s address from Japan or Hong Kong at tamiyablog’s cost, but the receiver may have to pay for customs or taxes depending on his/her country’s import laws.

 

We are looking forward to your continuous support also during the next 5 years!

The team of tamiyablog.com
