Recently, Jio announced video contest ‘Jio’s Got Talent’ providing opportunity to youth to bag a free trip to abroad.
The Jio’s got talent is organized by Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited and is available on Snapchat app.

Jio’s got talent is a video contest for snapchatters to demonstrate their talent and flair to win prizes. The platform offers to connect with other people in an artistic, amusing and expressive manner.
Mohammad Moyeen, a Jio user and snapchat lover said it was a wonderful opportunity for him.
“I love to use Snapchat and maybe I could have been the one to win the contest,” he added.
To take part in challenge, users have to record a video (max 10 seconds) showcasing their talent using “Jio’s got talent” lens on the snapchat app.
