    It's a personal call then. Would you want to be a non-attending person, and people show you shots from the show before you go? It's as close as reading spoilers of movies online - you know what to expect, but you risk ruining scrutinizing the show for yourself.

    If you really want to post up as a non-working party, you could add something like [SPOILER ALERT] to the subject title

    If I want to go and expect surprises, then I simply dont go and see people's photos loh!

    This "media embargo" applies every year, and every year, tonnes of photos gets leaked out. And here I am speaking from the perspective of someone involved in the parade for about six times liao in various aspects: twice with the SAF (while serving NS), once with the SPF, and three times as a performer. I am sure my collection of photos didnt make a major impact in spoling the party for others!

    Gosh... I wonder why some of you need to make such a big deal out of such a small issue. Get back on topic! Or are you just out to satisfy your ego and prove that you've got some really big guts? Sheez... *Shake head*

    The topic is on NDP happenings, and I would think most people here are chiefly concerned about whether they can shoot away and post, so I doubt it can be considered a "small issue". A discussion on the ability to take photos for this event and post them is relevant and on topic as far as I am concerned. You have every liberty to disagree and ignore.

    Or shall I try my best try to use another example:

    If everyone had posted shots and had permission to move all over to place to shoot; then a lot of photographers on official duty at the event can go home already.

    I was an official photographer before, and no, my boss didnt tell me to go home despite all kinds of photos flying all over the place...I wish he had!

    Anyway it hasent reached an extreme whereby everyone has "permission to move all over to place to shoot"...official photographers stilll have greatest liberty to move anywhere, and afterall, their output isnt always for general publicity. Organisers, participants, companies, etc do use them for their own purposes as well, so I am quite sure they will still be very much around.

    I Agree with HuaiWei's view...

    As an official of certain organisation or committee, u have your own tasking. U won't want to be an official and Committe "A", "B", "C" to ask u for different photos where u have your own task to complete... it will be like the old pharse, "paying peanuts for monkey"...

    As for posting of photos, if the official photographer wanted to SHOW off their work, by all means, it just show that they are not professional to keep their work for their clients. Whose client wants to see the effort or what they have pay for see on the net without their permission or even they have not used it... They pay for u to post on the net and let it run wild??

    U can make one person happy, but can u make everyone happy??

    Definitely yes, but to what extent, this is not known. The Primary 5 kids will be at the Stadium for the NE Show this Saturday. 29th is the Preview, so you can expect to see even more fireworks.
