Thread: I won a prize in a photo competition!

  1. #1

    Default I won a prize in a photo competition!

    I'm so happy that I just have to tell you guys this.

    Late last year, for the first time in my life, I joined a photo competition, an open category nation-wide one. I never expect to win anything. Very very tough challenge pitting my small simple point & shoot camera (a Canon A630) against those pro, semi-pro & serious hobbyists with their big powerful DSLR. The results were announced on 26th Feb this year. There were over 8000 entries for the open category and only 63 were selected as winners. Imagine my surprise and joy when against all odds, my photo won a Merit Award!

    What did I won? Beside the glory, S$100 cash(cheque), a Nikon CoolPix L21, a certificate & a 5R photo of my entry.

    Full story in my blog.

    congrats!

    this is a great motivation to those who own tiny PnS cam, like me.

    personally i feel, in such competitions, the GREAT image quality from GREAT cameras is not important. Maybe the quality of certain field will affect the "story" but the most important point is the meaning behind the picture. A handphone pic with great story captured is better than a great cam but captured, well, you get what i mean..

    once again, congrats

    Congratulations, that is truly a nice image

    It's a shame the competition is very fudgy on photographers rights, but you can't help that, really
