    Talking Need Help! Need advice on organize a photo competition on POLAROID.

    DEAR ALL,

    I'm Xavier here.
    I need some advice on how to organize a Photo Competition on POLAROID?

    First of all, what I'm doing it here is NOT doing it out of profit or any form of $$$ in return or
    promoting any company's name, brand and Label to earn profit out of it.
    Just doing it out of fun and my interest in polaroid pictures taking.
    As we all know Polaroid Corporation announced this year on February.
    All instant film made from Polaroid will be discontinue and all production will stop by the end of this year.

    This make me want to do a Gathering + Competition for Polaroid.
    It's just a small idea of mine. But, i really do not have any idea on where to start
    and where to go about doing it.

    Program on that day :

    The competition come with two theme (yet to confirm)
    1. The Singapore Flyers.
    2. Vintage Singapore.
    3. God(s) (places of worship).
    4. LIFE.
    (more will be added??)

    Each participants will have 4 -5hour to get 2 theme done.
    With 2 theme, this will make the competition a lot harder.
    To get 2 good pictures is not easy and yet is not too hard.

    This will be a one day events. Cause, all picture are instant pictures.
    There will be less waiting time for the Judges.
    Just wait till all participants are back and Judges can to the judging on who will be the winner.


    Now! Here is the problem.

    1. Where to find fund for the prizes for this events?
    2. Should i make this a paying entry competition to fund for the prizes?
    3. Am I just wasting my time here who will pay to do this kind of competition?
    4. If it's a paying entry competition? How much should i ask for each participants?


    All advice are welcome good/bad.


    Btw, do not know where to post my thread.
    It not really a gathering and not really an event.
    So, i post it here.

    Here are my other link on this : http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=359553


    Thanks for looking.


    Cheers..

    Can't you see that a certain company is obviously going to benefit from the competition? Instant prints are not cheap. Can I shoot with Fuji Instax instead?

    Any dates? So its easier to plan things out.
    Having expensive gears do not make you a better photographer. Period.

    Yup, Polaroid will benefit.

    But, Polaroid Corporation announced on Feb 8 this year!
    Even if Polaroid benefit on this event it will be useless for them.

    Date on the event is easy. But to get at less 20 to join and where to find the prizes is harder!

    My plan :

    Place : Red Dot Design Museum.
    Date : May/June first Sunday of the month. ( Most people off on sunday)
    Time : 1pm -5pm ( 4 hours 2 theme)

    Everything should end around 6pm -6.30pm.

    Please post your idea if you have any?


    Thanks.

    Good News, we can make this event a reality.

    Cathay Photo will be the main sponsor and my company J2E Photography will co-sponsoring to pay for the rental of location at Red Dot Museum and one prize a Polaroid 600 Classic. Admin have also given their blessing for this event to be an official Clubsnap event

    TS, please form a small working committee and see if we can meet on tomorrow or next Tue. Let me know (You know my contact number)

    A small committee of 4-5 would be fine.

    Any members want to help? you can put your names here.
