    and some more, they also have the link to buy and "order photos". Wow! Good business isn't?

    it's not often that you get to shoot competitive athletes here in singapore. and with a carnival event held after the prize presentation to boot as well.

    i think it's a worthwhile trip to gain exposure and experience in shooting this type of events.

    you don't even have to submit your photos for THEIR competition and give up YOUR copyright.

    you can always keep it for a more lucrative and suitably themed competition for
    your shots.

    just my two cents.

    I had check with the organiser, apparently we need to fill in the PDF registration form, mail it to the SSC per the address in the form, wait for their response.. according to organiser, the SSC will provide a pass for all registered participant.

    Call them for more enquiry.

    HSBC should sponsor the event next time to avoid the embarassment to banks that cannot afford to hire event photographer and resort to cheapskate tactics to obtain images...... tsk tsk tsk......

    i know, just pointing it out for those who don't bother to read the t&c

    for that kind of prize money and T&C i won't be joining.

    btw read point #9 clearly, it says "any photographs" not submitted photographs

    why does everyone always complain about these things? when you enter a competition you are giving photos to them, if you wanted to use the photos for something else as well, i.e. a magazine, they probably wouldnt accept it anyway because you already submitted it to this contest.
