Hi,
Did anyone here join this last year? How did film users submit their work? Did they give unprocessed rolls? Appreciate if film users share this experience with this event. Thanks.

film users will be given a roll of black and white film, upon finishing the roll, you will submit it and the organiser will develop it and have it scanned into digital copies. there will be 2 rounds of selection, first one for you to select a certain number of best shots for submission (you get to view your shots digitally) and second one is the organiser's internal selection. if i am not wrong you will be getting back your developed negatives and a CD of the digital copies of your shots (not too sure, i shoot digital)

and one more thing, this event is not a competition, it is for everyone (beginners, amateurs, professionals, hobbyists) and anyone (photogs, non-photogs alike) to contribute to the documentation of the year's final 24 hours here in Singapore. you don't need to have an slr or dslr, a simple P&S camera will do. cheers :)

Hmmm, interesting! Never knew got such event :)
Something to do if I don't have to work that day.

Just to point out that the shooting time states, "31-12-2004, 0.01am - 11.59pm". Strictly speaking, 0.01am doesn't exist.

oh come on, $12 is not very costly, if 300 people take part it will only fetch them $3600, this money has to feed the purchase of film rolls, the cost of developing the film rolls, cost of cds, cost of printing the books, cost of renting spaces etc. in fact they have to source for enough computers, card readers, and even do the editing for the book most probably out of their own time without payment, there may be funds from last 2 years' sale of the books but seriously with such a small market they really can't earn much ... and without help from various sponsors (getting lesser i heard over the 3 yrs) this would have been impossible

so please give your full support to this event to let it continue for years to come!

I believe this was adequately explained by eikin. This is a voluntary project and as such funds are at a minimal. If there were sponsors, perhaps it would cost less.

For me, it doesn't matter... $12 is not a lot. I look at this as a way for photography and also arts to grow locally. The last line in the poster states, "How long will this event be sustained ??? Your involvement is the answer."
