Kia sends the grand winner of “Fan of the Week” to the Australian Open 2012 November 9th, 2011

Want to prove to the world how much you love Kia? Tout your love for Kia by participating in the Kia’s “Fan of the Week.” Just follow the steps in the picture below:

“Fan of the Week” is a contest in which Kia invites Facebook users to submit a photo or a video of their own experience with Kia for each week’s topic. Weekly topics are announced in the event tab of Kia Motors official Facebook page on Monday, and fans can upload their story in the same place.

At the end of the year two grand prize winners will be selected from the 23 weekly ‘Kia Fan of the Week’ winners to go on a trip with a companion to Melbourne, Australia in January 2012. Moreover, a new Kia Fan of the Week will be announced and will receive Facebook Credits valued at $50 USD every week for the 23 weeks event period.

Currently, 126 fan posts have been piled up and 13 stories have been picked as weekly winners. Some people participate for the prize, but others do it to share a picture or a video of their Kia car in amazing backdrop – Kia in front of Egyptian Pyramid and Kia in the middle of desert with a giraffe. The first week winner, Brahim Ben Salem also showed us his Forte Koup next to the world’s second largest amphitheater in Tunisia.

There are also some other fans that have shared their heart-warming family moments with us. Veronica Valarezo and her husband chose a Cerato (known as Forte in some countries) rather than other cars for their baby and said they are enjoying it so much because it’s comfortable and spacious. We were also happy to see a little cutie with Kia!
