In recognizing Malaysia's rich cultural heritage, OPPO has announced its mission to celebrate local culture through innovative imaging and AI technology. This initiative is supported by the Ministry of Tourism, Arts & Culture (MOTAC) and the Malaysian National Commission for UNESCO (MNCU).

OPPO’s commitment to "Technology for Mankind, Kindness for the World" drives its #OPPOMalaysiaThroughTheLens campaign, part of this year's imagine IF photography awards. The campaign aims to empower people to capture and preserve Malaysia's fading cultures and traditions, fostering a harmonious and empathetic society.

Monica Chin, OPPO Malaysia's Chief Marketing Officer, emphasized the importance of culture in connecting our past to our future. She highlighted how technology and AI can help the younger generation enjoy and interpret heritage.

The campaign features five Malaysian cultural art forms through the lens of the new OPPO Reno Series. It includes a short documentary on Wayang Kulit with master puppeteer Pak Dain and artist Tin Toy, showcasing their efforts to preserve this traditional art form.

Other featured art forms include the Ngajat dance, Magagung, Dondang Sayang, and Chinese Opera, each presented through a series of short documentaries. These efforts aim to preserve and celebrate Malaysia’s diverse cultural legacy.

OPPO will also release a coffee table book during the national month, capturing the essence of these cultural moments.
