Take Action!

Tell us your story through images and stand to win a Leica camera worth $1,450. The Life in Action photography competition wants you to chronicle Singapore – its people, events and issues.

Whether as a simple still image or a photo essay, share your slice of life with us. From a tender moment taken at the birth of your first child, to a shot of a football team celebrating their victorious win or a documentation of an old playground where you roamed as a child to the beautiful scene captured at a park - tell us what’s important to you today. See e-flyer below for the prizes!

Each tour is capped at 20 participants. Limited spaces, sign up soon, especially for the Friday sessions (the museum is extending its gallery hours just for the tours - so it will almost be like your "Night in the museum" with a private tour!)
