Muscat: With the aim of enabling people to utilise the lockdown in a productive and entertaining manner, Nexus Novel Advertising (NNA), has designed an online live quiz contest, ‘#QuizLive’, to be held from August 21 onwards.
Registrations for the quiz, which is open to all, began on July 24, 2020, on its website, http://nnaquizlive.com/.
To take part in the event, each team which consists of no more than two persons, will have to pay an entry fee of OMR10/$26.
#QuizLive has been drawn up in such a way as to help those competing teams to take part while sitting in the comfort of their homes.
The quiz will be live and interactive on a video-conferencing platform (Zoom), will be international in nature and open to people of all nationalities, ages and gender.
According to the organisers, the prelims for the quiz will be held on Friday, August 21 at 4:30pm Oman time, the semi-finals on Saturday, August 22, at 4:30pm Oman time, and the finals on Friday, August 28 from 4:30pm Oman time onwards.
According to Mobin Beg, head of Nexus Novel, “The quiz is aimed at helping residents of Oman to update their general awareness and knowledge of current affairs and use the lockdown days in a productive manner. All are invited to take part in this enlivening event for which exciting prizes are up for grabs. Our philosophy is to ring in 'edutainment' events for all age groups. It promises to be as exciting and rewarding as ever. So, it is time to put on your thinking cap.”
The quiz will be hosted by celebrated quizmaster Murli Pillai who is no stranger to Oman. He was a resident of Muscat from 1999 to 2019. During his stint in Muscat, Murli has conducted over 200 quizzes.
Since his return to India, his new venture, LetsGetQuizzical, has been conducting quizzes for leading schools, youth hostels, corporates and private groups in Muscat, Doha, Dubai, Singapore, USA, Canada and India.
Murli Pillai’s quizzes are both general as well as theme-based (domain-specific), covering a variety of topics including entertainment, sports, music, literature, history, geography and technology etc., and are renowned for their multi-tiered content with major focus on audio-visual content.
Said Murli, “This is the best time, while staying at home, to engage in some fun and education. The basic premise of this quiz is not only to test knowledge but also to motivate the teams to use their imagination, thus making the whole experience fun for one and all. It aims at sparking creativity and innovation among the participants.”
