A special contest themed ‘Invite travel 3Sixty°' was also announced in conjunction with the magazine’s 100th issue. This contest provides readers of the magazine opportunities to invite the editorial team to visit their home town and be featured as the cover story, enabling local stories to be shared on a regional front through the magazine.

The inspiration for this special contest came from a school teacher. Larrie Jessika from the rural area in Tebedu, Sarawak who emailed the editorial team and shared his story on how he has been using travel 3Sixty° to teach his students about other cultures in the region, apart from improving their English.

His initiatives reached the ears of the editorial team when the school teacher wrote in to request for old copies of the magazines to be donated to the school. Since then, copies of travel 3Sixty° have made regular appearances at the school as part of their lessons. Read more about this inspiring teacher : HERE
