Most important it is for a good cause. But not for exploitation.
I would prefer to enjoy at the Baybeats with my friends from other countries and just snap what i want without obligations. And Esplande is not run by "GOV", it's private organization if i am not wrong and Baybeats are organize by an event company call Awakening Production.
As for this, those would love to have more access like, going to the back stage or closer to the Bands and stars or better view and freedom at the front stage. THis will be a good chance for you if u dun mind shooting for them for you passion. But pls do check what their expectations.
Hmm.. sure is an effective way to get free images from countless hopefuls out there...
On a side note: how much work have photographers have gotten work from a credit in 6pt font by the side of the image? Seriously.

Wah seh! I think this thread is becoming more of like a debate already liao. But nevertheless, opinions are welcomed though. Well, everyone has their own views on things, don't we? Some might see it in a positive way and some might see it in a negative way. Hence, nobody forces anybody to do this.
If you think you're up for it, then just go. And good luck!
And as for those who don't, it's ok. No worries.
You can go to this website: http://www.baybeats.com.sg/ to check it out.
U like it u do it. U dont like it u dont stop people from doing it.
IF someone offer you to have a go at vogue editorial and provide the equipments and and and.. free flight and accomodation! But pictures rights are to them and its free labour. would u miss the opportunity becasue you are not paid for the shot. would u miss the opportunity because you cant have the copyright of the pictures you shot? Would you miss the opportunity beacuse fashion isnt your thing.
im with u, relinquishingjunk.
Sorry to say but why always look at the money involved. I know its important, money is not everything but most things. Are you not happy when you peek into the small lil 2-3" screen behind your dslr and smile at what you just took. That moment is priceless to me. Maybe you can say yeah, priceless to me cause out of 100000 pictures, only 1 made me smile. I would say, so what, at least i have 1 photo which you dont because you think damn right that your photographs deserve to be paid but sadly, i dont think so.............
if u take something, return something. simple right. If you like gigs, shoot it. paid or not. And return your wonderful work to the people who appreciate gigs.
If you happen to shoot at some marathon, paid or not. Wouldnt it be very nice to let whoever have their photos? Dont have to be money and rights always. Dont you feel happy when another person who receive the photo you took and says thank you?
okie thats what i feel. sorry for the lengthy post.
i'm with k3nshinx and relinquishing junk. if you guys don't wanna join. Don't comment. This is an exhibition and contest page. this is not a kopitiam or critique page. Get the drift guys.
There's a difference between giving them a copy, and giving up all your rights to the photo. You do know that you won't even be able to put them on a website / flicker / blog etc to share with your friends even, if they don't give permission right? If they want to use the photo but don't want to credit you, it's also their right.
And if you think any chance to click akins to improving your craft, think harder. You are not even learning.
