    Of course, there is the student cat to think about..... emmm?
    Get your best photo join in Pro.
    2nd best , use your wife name join Amatuer
    And your 3rd best use your nephew' name.

    Sure can get at least one winning, am I right?
    Then, you must make sure your wife and nephew know how to use your SLR camera. Otherwise, the judges will cancel the winning prize when they found that your wife and nephew doesn't even know what is SLR??

    Wedding photographer also need artistry. You think just shoot in studio ah? Haven't u heard of outdoor wedding shoot? Normally, they will have both studio and outdoor in the package. Who will want a wedding album that is all studio... not me for one... so damn boring.
    Wedding photographer (outdoor) needs to blend his subjects into the surroundings... pretty much same skill as for this competition.

    Btw, I think you have made a mistake if you think they want very artistic photos. They just want nice photos of Vivocity. Its for marketing material, not the art museum!
    The best photographer is one who is inspired by the innate nature of his subjects.

    Oh.... Don't worry.
    With LCD, digital photography has become a new hobby to everyone.
    How to prove?
    Professional photographer may not win all the time. They do lost to enuthist photograhers too.

    There is no clear definiations on PRO or AMAuters.
    I guess they would be looking at :
    AMAUTER Cat : OK photos. WHY? because if they choose a damm PRO looking photos for the top three prizes, then it will look bad for the PRO cat? right.

    PRO Cat : Their photos will be very outstanding! With a lot of things to see like night time of VIVO city from arial view. Sure got one winning photo like that. Eg, u take it from cable car.
    Very calender kind with wide angle shoots. It will be difficult to have someone reading a magazine at Page One store and said that is in VIVO city. Right? One winning enry from their children playground and last one from their interior with many shoppers.

    Please submit your BEST 3 photos based on what I said, you won't go read.
    I'm DOCTOR XAVIER, I can read minds. But can't take good pictures.

    You have very good points here. Its highly probable but still hard to say if this will really be the case la.

    Does anyone know if we can submit photos in both categories?

    Since when is this an "arty farty" photo comp?

    And since when do pictures need to be "Arty farty" before a photog can be deemed a professional?

    RED => Added because I am getting weird replies to this post. This should avoid further misunderstandings.

    BTW, I am refering to 1st prize of Pro Cat, $10K + exhibition of personal works
    I believe in the form it's also stated as ".....exhibition of original photography works IN Vivocity..."

    I'm not sure if it means only photos taken in Vivocity or other works...

    Yes, I also interpret as exhibiting your own personal works, and exhibition to be held IN Vivo. So I don't interpret it as photos taken IN Vivo.

    yes,maybe the judge think your nephew's pics are worthy of PRO prizes and the Pro's entry cannot make it.
    So will they "upgrade" your nephew's entry to the Pro's Cat?

    don't think so, how you be an amateur and a pro at the same time?

    Depending on the mood and whether it's before or after a cup of coffee??
    But the rules don't seem to prohibit submitting in two categories (or three, if you're a student).
    I guess one can tell from whether a photo was taken candidly for fun, or from a photographer in top form at the moment. Don't tell me you guys are always in top form?

    I have submitted my entries to both Amateur and Pro categories depending on how I think they will be perceived, or as I perceive them to be.

    Wahhh... this is getting more and more complicated.
    I initially thought of submitting all in amatuer category... then now seems like pro might be a good idea too... for the best shot...
    Hmm... now headache... dunno my best shot got better chance in pro or amatuer...

    8R is 8in x 10in. S8R is 8in x 12in. A4 is roughly around 8in x 11in.

    So those A4 photo paper are 8x11?
    Then how? Is it ok to print on those paper for the contest?

    Btw, do you know how much it costs to get a photolab to print 8R and how long it will take?

    Photohub very good.
    $5.50 per 8R or 8R super. Over $20 got 20% discount.

    I think I join the Amature Cat..... Why?
    I'm not a famous Full-time photographer.
    I', hobbist. Take only 6 times a year.

    I'm thinking it could mean that if a Pro lose to a "never-heard -of" photographer.
    Then the pro will bla..bla...bla...
    So I think leave it to the pro for pro cat.

    Example:
    If our 3D animated movie (the dragon underwater...) can't match the quality of even Korea Hong Kong,or Japan, then WHY we bother to put on the Big Screen. I understand that "reality". so I joining AMATUER Cat.
