First, we pray you are well and your loved ones are safe from harm.
The Infographic below displays the modifications we have made with the APPIES Marketing Awards judging, timing and event flow.
We are adapting and investing in APPIES as the national emergency scenario unfolds every day.
Judging will be done online, I have experienced the system first-hand when I judged the EPICA Awards in Colombo earlier this month.
This process mirrors exactly what we’d be doing in a face to face situation; everything is done remotely deploying the best technology available. All judges have agreed to do the judging from home.
The awards event on May 14 (7.30pm – 9.20pm) only if things are right, but we’ll finalise on that later; for now it’s a continuity plan.
MERCY Malaysia’s mobile Covid-19 unit will be on standby for full screening protocol of all guests, plus social distancing and hygienic measures. We tested this successfully a month ago here.
FYI, I also spend time monitoring communications from our virtual “War Room” at MERCY Malaysia. So for those who’d like to donate to our frontline war efforts at MERCY Malaysia can do so here.
Every little bit helps.
