    Default "I Love Singapore" Photo Contest - One Unexpectedly Challenging Theme???

    Hi,

    I saw this photo contest:
    http://www.phlook.com/contests/ils2008/contest.aspx

    Decent prizes. Sounds easy at first but when I tried, it seems more challenging than I thought!!!

    Anyone has any good suggestions?

    Just find it difficult to think of something relevant to shoot ... you find such a theme easy?

    It appears to be a photo-sharing site. How does one tell if a contest is bogus?

    Its the fonts and the design and the web address..
    Someting tells me that its hastily put together.
    The prizes also are not sponsered by the respective comapnies...i.e Nikon and SOny combine to sponser the contest??
    Lastly, to view entries, u must log in... Hmmm..
    I might be wrong though....
    Well, there are lots of 'Singapore' theme contest out there nowadays due to the upcoming national day...i think lets reserve our photos for one of those bah.

    its based on voting. any tom dick and harry can upload his own photo, and vote countlessly for his own photo to win. :/

    The shot is excellent, but it's irrelevant to the theme. In what way is the photo portraying "I love Singapore"?
