Explore Singapore! – An integrated marketing campaign by Singapore’s National Heritage Board

My friend Walter heads the corporate communication and industry promotion division at Singapore’s National Heritage Board, and I thought they have rolled out an interesting, multi-faceted marketing campaign, called Explore Singapore!

The campaign (ongoing till Dec ’07) features a gamut of activities from a sleepover at the Philatelic Museum to a grandparents’ day gentle walk at the Asian Civilizations Museum (which incidentally, is host to a world class exhibition called the Nalanda Trail: Buddhism in India, China, and Southeast Asia).  The face of this campaign is Mark Lee, a controversial choice, but given the objective to bridge the gap between museums–which suffer from the perception of being pursuits for the high-brows and elites–and the masses I think the choice was appropriate.  In fact, one of the activities Lee will be hosting is an open house with taxi drivers at the Singapore Art Museum. 

To extend the reach of the program, NHB has designed a social media component that is well-integrated with the overall campaign.  This is in the form of a photoblogging contest

This is where I will take the liberty of lifting text from Walter’s blog (do you mind, Walter?).  To take part…
