"you took thousands of pictures in 2010, but which 3 do you like most? show them at PLATFORM 11.1"
A LITTLE ABOUT PLATFORM (cut and paste from their FB page)
PLATFORM is a gathering of Singapore-based photographers, who use stills, video or multimedia, to tell stories.
But beyond just Telling, we want to Show you our Stories.
Our primary interest is in serious social documentary.
PLATFORM is set up with two goals:
- to foster social documentary visual storytelling in Singapore through the photography medium
- to bring these stories, that touch on issues concerning our community, to a greater Singaporean audience
PLATFORM's 'founding' members include Tay Kay Chin, Ernest Goh, Nicholas Chee, Alex Teh, Lim Wei Yang, Samuel He, Sam Kang Li, Desmond Lim & Darren Soh.
We are always on the look-out for like-minded people to join us in making this more than just a social gathering.
Note From the Organizers:
To welcome the new year, we are putting together a big slide-show, which will be aired through the night, on huge screen, at the Jan 4 session at National Museum Singapore.
One half of the segment will come from professional media photographers, and that part of the show is being put together by Straits Times picture editor Mike Sargent, and AP staff photographer Wong Maye-e.
The other portion will come from YOU & I. Yes, us.
It is very simple: think of 3 images that you make in the year 2010, and email it to us at email@example.com
There are just a few technical specs we would need you to follow :
- We prefer pictures in the documentary, photojournalistic, street and personal genres. But hey, these days, with all lines blurred, things are not so black and white. So just send your favorite three.

long side and save them as JPG files with
