Jungle fever wins Bula Friday

WITH the theme of their entry being jungle fever, staff members of the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat won The Fiji Times' first week of the Bula Friday Office Challenge.

The group of five posed with bula smiles as they clutched trees surrounding their office in Suva yesterday.

They won the cash prize of $100, which increases every week, meaning next week's prizewinner will get $200, and the following week's winner will get $300.

The friendly competition is aimed at anyone who is working and belongs to a team of more than two people who love to get creative in the attire department.

Competing offices must submit photos of the staff members in their best bula outfits.

The Fiji Times marketing manager, Fotokalafi Ledua said the competition was also aimed at rewarding hardworking members of the public.

"We all work so hard and sometimes don't get rewarded for it so The Fiji Times wants to recognise everyone's efforts in a fun and creative way and give some money towards their Christmas/New Year's parties," Ms Ledua said.

The promotion began in 2010 and as a result of the positive response from the public it has been repeated every year since.

"The aim was to create and revive office pride in businesses around the country, the response was overwhelming.

"A lot of companies were happy with the competition because it revived the team spirit in their organisations and because we were offering great cash prizes.

"If you're working and belong to a team of more than two people, send us fun, creative and exciting photos that capture the Bula Friday spirit," said Ms Ledua.

The competition began this week and ends in its eighth week, in January, 2013.
