Bikroy.com, one of the largest marketplaces in Bangladesh, has launched "I Love Bangladesh" – a story writing competition, on the occasion of the Victory Day.
The stories need to be about a freedom fighter or someone who, out of their deep-rooted patriotism, has played or is continuing to play an important role in the progress and well-being of the country and its people.
The contestants can write about themselves or their acquaintances. Bikroy.com has been organising the competition since the last year to celebrate Victory Day.
CycleLife Exclusive is the "Powered By partner" of the competition. The competition was announced at an MoU signing ceremony on November 27, 2019, held at the head office of Bikroy in Dhaka.
Eshita Sharmin, head of marketing, ad sales and jobs at Bikroy and Hasibuzzaman Hassib, general manager of CycleLife Exclusive were present among others at the press conference.
The participants need to visit the Bikroy Blog and provide relevant information and submit their stories either in written form or in video content. The last date for story submission is December 16, 2019. The stories can be written either in Bengali or English.
Five top stories will be selected for the award. The five winners will receive a Seventy One bicycle each from the "Sector Series" or the "Guerilla Series". Besides, the winners of this competition will have the opportunity to build a career as a part-time writer for Bikroy's blog and will be given certificates from Bikroy.com as well. The prizes will be distributed to the winners on December 23, 2019.
Eshita Sharmin, head of marketing, ad sales and jobs of Bikroy.com, said, "We want to celebrate this year's Victory Day with someone who truly loves the country, has worked or is working for the welfare of the country.
This is a wonderful opportunity to share stories of people who have done something good for the community from their respective positions. So, start writing, tell us their stories, and let us honour them on the 49th Victory Day of Bangladesh."
Hasibuzzaman Hassib, general manager of CycleLife Exclusive said, "We are delighted to partner with Bikroy.com's "I Love Bangladesh" story competition on the occasion of the Victory Day. It is a great platform to spread the story of people who are fighting hard for the country and the people. I hope that the winners will be happy to receive our "Sector Series" and "Guerilla Series" Seventy One bicycles inspired by the Liberation War.
