    Replying to myself:

    I will submit a white pic, pure white only, to participate, so that i will never be sue (no third party involve), white stands for purify (no smoke etc), and most importantly, i surrender to the organizer, cos they are too smart and too rich to fight against with....

    I downloaded the OFFICIAL ENTRY FORM, expect it will come with a model release form for the participants to use.

    But don’t have leh. Only ask you to read the rules and regulations yourself, once you submit your entry, you are agree to abide by the rules and regulations.

    So if anyone don’t read carefully and just anyhow submit entries, later got anything happen (choy! choy! touch wood), please don’t come back here to cry father cry mother.

    guilty people c smoke trail run far far loh.

    but in small ways (effective or not) we can educate those who r close 2 us abt such loopholez. i cant image if its a 7yr old kid gets into such a legal trouble... hopefully in d long run organisers will get less pics lo due 2 their own making. let unfair competitions die a natural death...

    even a highly publicised, well funded awareness campaign may not hav a desired impact & effectiveness. jus look at our local "Kindness Week" campaign or wad-nots...

    Hmmm, I just touched down in Singapore. Do you have anything prejudiced against PSS? I am sure there is based on your posts, not just in this thread. Likewise for YQT.

    I may have met you,I do not know. But at the TSWL launch at Singapore Arts Museum, one of the clubsnapper came up to me and proudly told me that he feel "shiok" writing against PSS. He said he felt thrilled. What a bore and waste of time.I think we have better things to do. Confucius said," one rice breeds a hundred types of men".

    Let us not make clubsnap ugly place. Feedback from many of our associates is they are less prone to post competition details in clubsnap.

    PSS is not reimbursed and do not receive donation for its role in this competition.

    To PSS Mr. Steven Yee:

    If some one took a very good pic, the image got big impact on our society, everyones loves it, the photographer got famous, HPB very please, then suddenly, the third party which appear in the photo sue HPB, can you let me know what will the photographer bear?

    Alot of ppl out there don't read good english, and i am sure that your answer here will made ppl read the T&Cs more carefully, or consult other ppl who commands better english.

    Bear in mind that this is a open forum. Be careful on what you post here.

    Regards
    Smurfman
    In the eye of the law, whether you know little english or dunno english at all hold no water if you accept the terms and conditions by submitting the entry.

    Neither PSS not HPB did anything underhand to coerce you to join the competition. As a participants, it is your responsibilities to read the T&C, agreed before sending in the entries. Since the T&C are clearly spelt out, i do not see any problems. In any case, if you think it's not spelt out clearly, simple, don't join the competition.

    as mentioned, every organisation have their rules and regulation. These type of rules are not found just in this competition, but also in others. It is for one to judge whether they can accept the rules. If one accept the rules, especially photographers who shoot to join competition and they know of such hoo haa, they will surely send in many entries. If one is skeptical, one can choose either not to take part or probably just submit one pix.

And still, PSS knowing full well all this, does nothing and even endorse the competation.
    PSS is supporting the competition in logistics only. We have talked to HPB about this copyright issue. They have consulted their legal team. They would like to stand by the current rules. We have to accept their decision. Now the ball is in the court of the photographers. Either take it or leave it.

    PSS should reflect if it should do nothing to protect the very people it claim to promote photography to, especially so when things that are not right are happening right under their nose.

    PSS should reflect if it should warn photographers who are enjoying the shooting process for this competation that there is a knife hanging over their head.
    While PSS tries to promote photography to the general mess, PSS cannot be nanny to too many people, telling everyone which competition to take part or not. Everyone is mature enough to read the rules and see if the terms are OK to them before taking part in the competition.

    PSS has told HPB that the rules are open to public critique. Photography is a friendly art.No need to challenge or protest. As mentioned, no one can say whether the rules are right or wrong. It is up to photographers to see if they want to accept them.

    Just like a chicken rice stall. If the food is nice,people go eat the food.If it is not,less people eat. THere will always be some people who like and some who do not like.

    Likewise for this competition, if one is not agreeable to the rules,then don't submit. Pretty simple. If one is still not happy, they can write in to HPB and voice out their opinion.

What I find unacceptable and cannot understand ( to the point that it makes my blood boil ) is that, given that PSS have been around for so long, with so many members and some are even professional, how can PSS stand by and do NOTHING when it sees things like this happening! Just because they're not part of the team that drew up the T&Cs, they do nothing even if something is wrong with it? Is this how the top photography club in Singapore think? How can PSS say " We have worked with HPB before and we trust their integrity as an organisation.We trust that they will not misuse the image." if something do go wrong, can we TRUST that PSS or HPB will help us?
    PSS have been promoting photography in Singapore for so long. Are they still doing the same thing they have been doing 10,15 years ago? Just promoting the process of taking pictures and nothing else? Come on, straighten your backbone, tell whoever needs your help " the rights and welfare of the photographer have to be looked into. I cannot endorse anything that will put the photographer at a disadvantage ".
    PSS is not involved in the drafting of the rules. When we saw the rules, we did advise HPB on the potential issues. They stand by their decision and we have to respect it. It is not wrong, as such terms and conditions are endorsed in some local and international competitions.

    For PSS to say "We do not have the legal teams to provide advise for photographers" is one thing, but to endorse something like this is another thing. It is like saying " this is OK, this is acceptable, there's nothing wrong with it ". Is that what PSS is saying? If so, than why change things with the Life Is Great competation?
    PSS is involved and consulted for the rules in Life is Great competition. The prize is good, rules are acceptable, hence the mountain of entries. Photographers know best what is good for them. Chance given up is automatically given up to others.

    Quote Originally Posted by yqt

    As mentioned, the rules and regulation are there for the photographer to see whether they accept or not. There is no right and wrong with regards to the one organised by HPB.

    The competition game is simple. Either to accept the rules and take part, or else, look out for other competition. PSS is involved in so many competitions. The recent Total Defence competition got so many prizes. The rules are fair, and we received quite a lot of images across the 10 sections. Even though it is fair,some chose not to take part. I do not know how many have missed their chances.

    IT IS HARD TO PLEASE EVERYONE. PSS has no obligation to please any individual. Photography is a people's art,and people have a choice whether to take part or not in these competitions. If one really treasure his works in a non monetory sense, one will not even take part in competitions. He will probably just put his works at home for personal pleasure viewing.

    Photography is not just about competitions.

    Hope this clarifies and put a stop to these hoo haa. If one is not happy, feel free to send feedback to HPB.

    Usually i dun like to interfere but i think this time things has gone too far. Why has there no one from PSS defend this?

    Well, first, i think there's nothing to defend by PSS and HPB. This is just a competition. I dun see anyone from CS challenging Nikon or Epson etc for their rules and regulations?

    2nd, PSS is a non-profit organisation, which i think still a lot of people is unaware. As such, PSS only have 2 full time staffs and to cut costs (well, we don't want to be another NKF having people questioning why we spend so much on internet) and with their busy schedule, the full time staffs usually will not come to CS except to post some course dates and answer queries. In fact, even steven seldom comes into CS. Therefore, there is hardly anyone in PSS who comes into CS.

    3rd Why am i answering? well, i am a PSS member and i knew the people there well and i know very well how they work. As such, at least i feel i can shed some light.

    That's all i have to say. I will not bother about this thread anymore since there's no real issue at all as far as i can see.
