    Who are the sponsors and which is the target group? For me, I would want an A-Mount CZ 16-80mm lens.
    Minolta. Konica Minolta. Sony

    There are no sponsors for now so free to buy any brand.

    Would prefer to buy prizes that are more generic that is suitable for alot of people.
    Looking at canon selphy printers for 3rd - 4th prize

    Actually, if there are no sponsors (ie you are free to choose any prizes), then I would suggest Cash Prizes. Cash is still always the best, at least for me :-)

    BTW, if your company wants to attract more (better) photographers for the competition, then I suggest that the rule will not include clause like "All entries are deemed to be the property of the organizer". It would appear like a cheap way for the company to obtain photos and that will put off many good photographers.

    Just my 2-cents worth.

    Thanx for the suggestion... and no.. its just a friendly competition to pull crowds to the place and not to get some photos for the company.

    Have addressed the issue of cash prizes and I agree that its much more attractive... but the licenses and procedures involved have put off my bosses

    So just have to obtain prizes that comes with a receipt... haiz...

    A 1k voucher from Harvey Norman or Best Electronic might be better crowd puller than a camera shop... Prob have it in denominations of $50 so the winner's family can use it to purchase also.

    Else a Scenic tour for 2 to take pictures in say... Korea? Japan? or any country within ur budget... just some ideas
    P&S: Sony U20, Pana-leica FZ5, Canon S90, Pana DMC-T3
    SLR: Nikkor F60, Oly E-510, Oly E-5

    Can't say I agree with giving out entry grade DSLRs with kit lens for photo competitions.. most photographers already have their own gear, so why would they want another basic dslr?

    IMHO, the best prizes are those suggested by the later entries like cash or vouchers from cathay (if they do sell vouchers)
