    The carlsberg one dont think is competition, is some performance, now should be at Tampines?

    The actual one is the Ngee Ann City National Lion Dance Championship which was held annually at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza around September. This is the one usually telecast on CNY.
    Yes flash can be used, at least I did not see any one being stopped.

    No flash should be used at the free style category competition due to the distraction to the dancers during the jumping on the high poles. The organisers will announced this and will go around asking ppl to turn off their flash if they spot any flash going off.

    Flash at the national Lion Dance competition is strictly not allowed. If you understand anything about the difficulties and dangers the competitors put themselves through while up on the high platforms/piles, you will not use the flash.

    You saw people using flash because those were the dweebs who didn't know what they were doing with their cameras! As far as I could tell, they were probablty shooting in 'P' mode with whatever camera they had which automatically switched on the flash due to the limited lighting.
