    They are not nurturing photographers...just need puppets to help keep the ratings up, otherwise the show won't last the next season.

    this is a business not a charity ....of course they need participants/actors (who are the intended 'stars' and not puppets? I'm sure they will have off-camera talks and coaching sessions to make sure surviving participants are prepared for the challenges thrown at them and put out good results.... like Singapore Idol ?)

    its a trade-off or 'price' of participation no ? Win or dont win, you get TV exposure on a TV programme while the producers get rights to the images shot during the course of the production contract period

    ...they make money, participants get TV time, audience gets entertained .... everyone happy (hopefully) .

    interesting

    will all participants get to use mediacorp's 1D Mark IV/D3S? or will they have to use own equipment?

    2. You must be completely available for filming during the period of October 10-27, 2010 and be able to live away from home for the course of that stipulated period. You must also be subsequently available for additional filming and appearances, if required, for publicity, follow ups and all other purposes as deemed necessary by the Producers.
    So need to take leaves for 17 days, from 10-27th of October 2010 !

    As I am a serious hobbyist photographer, and still have a main job. It's almost impossible for me to participate.

    Nikon is the main sponsor if I'm not wrong. My guess is that contestants will be allowed to use their own equiptment, if not it will be Nikon cams.
    I get paid more shooting part time ...... damn, I should find more time to shoot part time

    Rats... my baby should be 30 days old during that time...

    And I think I will be rejected anyway, being too old, and too ugly..

    Ya I agreed. Not many will have the luxury to have so many annual leave....some lucky ones have 20 or 21 days as maximum, while some only have 14 days...how to participate?

    but yea.... having to commit so many days for the shoot is kinda a turn off
    For passion or prestige? A trend or a niche?

    Congratulation for your call. Hope that everything is going smoothly !
    Just inform us who is the host or judge of the show ?
    A professional photographer ?

    Dear Flydance

    there is only one main reception at Mediacorp.
    The convenient way is to go to Bishan or Marymount Train Station and take a cab (save ur walk up the hill).

    Just bring your IC

    and IsenGrim is right... bring a cameraphone (make sure u charged ur handphone as well)

    Best of luck to all the participants... 8)

    Dear Flydance

    I have a very old Nokia candybar phone with a 2mp camera. It drains battery life very fast and I am unable to render colors properly unless under strong daylight.

    That is precisely the beauty of photography and any creative process.
    You are always the decision maker based on the resources available.
    You can choose to work on the strengths or focus on exploiting the weaknesses.
    The more tools in your arsenal means greater ease but does not translate into better works. In fact the less you have to work with, the more you drill in to the possibilities.

    regardless of outcome, hope you enjoyed your experience.

    all the best
