I'll like to know which category you'll be participating in. Either the "Open" or "Pro Category". And once you've registered for this compeition, it means that you're already in the compeition. So pls be punctual on 16 Oct and remember to bring along your indemnity form, which can be printed out from the website.

Congratulations once again for successfully registering for the Digital
Life- Canon Digital Photo Marathon 2004. The location, once again, is at Anglo Chinese School at Barker Road, the Auditorium. You may visit www.photomarathon.com.sg for the site map.
Thank you for your e-mail queries and suggestions for the Digital Life -
Canon Digital Photo Marathon 2004.
We would like to clarify the following:
1. On bringing friends: There will not be seating space for supporters
and friends. Only registered participants are allowed to sit in for the
assignment briefings, download images and so on. This is due to the
seating capacity of the Auditorium in Anglo Chinese School, and the
large number of participants. Our priority is to cater to the need of
particpants first and foremost. However, your friends are free to wait in
the vicinity outside the Auditorium
2. You can use any form of transportation. You decide where you want to
go to shoot your photographs, depending on the assignment themes. There
will be no reimbursement for any transport costs.We strongly encourage
everyone to use public transport, as parking spaces are limited and parking
woes might eat into your time.
3. Image size: We require images to be set at 1,600 x 1,200 pixels (2
megapixel resolution), in JPEG format. You can adjust your camera settings
to this format. Which cameras or accesories (like lenses or filters) you
want to use is entirely your choice. If your camera does not have the exact
2-megapixel resolution in JPEG, just set it to a resolution that is close
enough. Our main purpose is to let everyone submit a photo that is as
high-resolution as possible, but does not take up more than 2MB in size so
that we can quickly process all images submitted. Feel free to approach the
organisers on the competition day, if you need help to set your camera's
image resolution size.
4. Downloading of images: You will be guided to use the downloading
software on a Macintosh computer and a Canon printer (or card
reader). It works similarly to the Windows desktop. If you can drag and
drop files between folders on your desktop, the downloading will be no
problem. But if you need help, we will assist in the download.
5. Editing of images: We do not allow editing of images using software,
in the interest of fairness. Please refer to the latest Terms and
6. Timings: You can download your images earlier than the stated times,
if you are early. But assignment themes will only be given out only at the
7. Briefing: Please come on time for the briefing that will begin at
8.30am on Oct 16. Registration starts at 8 am.

We will like to thank your support for the 2nd digital photo
marathon in Singapore, and we hope to make it a memorable event for all
participants to enjoy as we did last year.
