    Importantly, what is the entrance fee to the stadium?

    I like football but not a fan of S league. hence not sure of the entrance fees and seating.

    The best location to shoot is to the right and left of the goalkeeper bcos penalty box is where games are decided.

    If to shoot from the spectators' stand where got vantage point

    Default canon compo

    hi, here's what i gathered at the launch this morning.

    it doesn't have to be at s-league games.
    It's anything that means anything related to football.
    the promo poster had a granny shoot a pic of her grandson cleaning his boots.
    so be creative and submit it to them.

    cheers,
    David

    wow. pretty picky T&C's there.

    must be able to blow up to 30x40cm. a little hard for those with lesser pixel count, but still can interpolate, i guess.

    at least 2000 px on the longer side and still must not exceed 400kb in filesize? ok, guess they're not asking for quality for submission though, but will ask for high res original later if you get a position.

    fairly interest 5K bounty, but erm, i'll pass

    I clicked the link to photo submission, there is a two category "Student" and "Open". Does that means different category different prize or wat?

    Not to pour cold water. If that happens, there will be at least 100 photog and football fans with cameras in the queue for the 10 or 20 places on the pitch.
    GOOD LUCK.
