    I knew the shortlist of 50 was out so i couldn't be bothered. To my surprised, this mail came in on 15th. Not sure if this is genuine or a spam!

    STB website is stb.com.sg. (this email is gov.sg)

    From: Priya MEYYAPPAN (Priya_MEYYAPPAN@stb.gov.sg)

    I am really not sure about this. This does sound confusing.
    Did you try to talk to STB? What does Danielle say about it?

    OK, here's the gist.

    Spoken to Priya, from whom i got an email.

    She said that there will be another email blast by tomorrow mentioning that STB will put up another 1000 images as thumbnails for public to poll. Those whose photos appear in that link will have to submit hi-res images.

    Apparently they will need more than the initial 50 photos for their marketing purposes.

    Ok, so the 1000 are only for marketing purpose, right?
    The winner will still be from the 50 initially selected I guess.

    Yes, basically they need a larger pool of photos. Let's wait for the next email.

    no prizes though if selected but credits will be given for the photos used. They wont tell us individually which photos you need to send. You have to look out for your photos among the 1000 images in the thumbnail...sigh

    Hmmmm.... looks like STB very blur and dunno how to run photo contest.

    One of my images was in the shortlisted 50 but till today I never got any word from them. And now they want the public to choose from 1000? They cannot decide for themselves? Give the public 1000 photos and public will be even more confused than STB.

    This is one big ALAMAK. First the unreasonable terms and conditions, now this...

    Richard, you never got an email from STB?
    Did you manage to send your high res image eventually?
    It would be sad if you were in final 50 and could not send the high res image

    No I never got any email from them and so I never sent them anything.

    In fact, I did not even know my image was there until a friend congratulated me. I had earlier glanced through but did not notice then I looked again and yes, it was there.

    Anyway thanks to you or someone else for Priya's contact. I just emailed her to ask what is going on. This whole thing seems just to confusedly organised,

    Cheers
    Richard

    1000 from 4000, and find one's submitted pic in 1000 ? Interesting.

    50 shortlisted -> 100 shortlisted -> 1000 ?
    Capture something different

    As it is, I was disappointed that most of the original 50 short-listed pixs did not really fit the theme of "contrast". Seemed to me most participants just anyhow hamtam and tourism board also anyhow pick.

    Cannot imagine how much more anyhow hamtam the 1000 pixs will be

    It gets boring after a while. And so what do you do?

    Resubmit to another competition again, NDP09 Come Together. Hope and pray no one will find out.
