Lifted from Straits Times Interactive:

PROFESSIONAL photographer Eric Goh is at it again. The president of the Singapore Colour Photographic Society, whose shot of a young girl adorns the cover of To Singapore With Love, last year's pictorial tribute to Singapore's 40th birthday, is contributing to a national cause again.

This time, he is sending some of his best works for a coffee table book on Singapore that will be a gift for delegates at the International Monetary Fund-World Bank Annual General Meeting to be held here in September.

But the Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts (Mica) wants contributions from all Singaporeans for the as yet untitled book. 'The book is a spontaneous portrayal of Singaporeans,' said a Mica spokesman. Photographs can be submitted either as prints or in CD format to: Mr Foo Siang Luen, National Marketing Department, 5th floor, MICA Building, 140 Hill Street, Singapore 179369.

The closing date is April 15. For inquiries, call 6837-9862

Photographers, time to do National Service!! Deadline is 2 May ~:thumbsup:

"Coffee table pictorial book on Singapore

Come this September, the world’s top bankers will converge in Singapore for the International Monetary Fund-World Bank meeting to discuss fiscal and monetary policies that will impact the world.

With 16,000 delegates and journalists visiting Singapore, we intend to mark the occasion by presenting our guests with a high-end coffee table pictorial which will be a fitting memento for them to remember us by. The pictorial will feature photos of the activities that ordinary Singaporeans engage in, among which eating ranks as one of the tops.

MICA, which oversees the production of the pictorial, calls on all Singaporeans to support this national cause by sending their best photographic works on the subject of food and/or eating to:

National Marketing Department
5th floor MICA Building
140 Hill Street
S 179369
(Attn: Mr Foo Siang Luen)

Send photos in CD format or in print (4R) together with your name, address and contact number. All submissions must reach MICA by 2 May 2006. Photographers whose works are selected will be acknowledged in the book, a copy of which will be presented to them as a token of appreciation. For details, please contact Mr Foo at 68379862 or email foo_siang_luen@mica.gov.sg."

Guess it's really up to you. Our garmen certainly got money to commission a photo book if they wanted to. This is peanuts compared to the millions and millions they are spending on bringing the meeting to S'pore.
