A local mattress company is holding a sleep contest in November, where the longer a contestant sleeps, the bigger the prize they are able to win

In the name of good sleep, Joey Mattress is holding 'The Joey Sleep Contest' for 150 contestants to battle out who can sleep the longest for the grand prize of a brand new mattress.

According to the organisers, the rules are really just that: the longer you sleep, the bigger your prize

The prizes worth a total of RM45,790 up for grabs are:
- Sleep 1 hour: 1x Joey Pillow
- Sleep 2 hours: 1x Joey Blanket
- Sleep 4 hours: 2x Joey Pillows and 1x Joey Blanket
- Sleep 8 hours: 1x Joey Mattress

The event will be held on Saturday, 5 November 2022, from 11am to 10pm at the Artisan's Playground in Kuala Lumpur.

To ensure the best sleeping experience, every contestant will also be given earplugs and sleep eye masks to keep them comfortable during the event.

Contest registration begins next Friday, on 21 October 2022, and the participation fee costs RM15

Participants who think they are champion sleepers can join the waitlist now on the Joey Mattress website, and will receive the sign-up link through email when the contest registration opens.

Apart from the sleep contest, visitors are also encouraged to walk in and spectate, as well as come in their best sleeping clothes — be it matching sets of pyjamas, kaftans, or oversized T-shirts — for a chance to win a special award for 'Best Dressed' on the day.
