It is finally here! This week Singapore will host the first ever night race in Formula 1 history.

And we want ClubSNAP members to be part of the action and help us create our own photographic record of the occasion. So we are pleased to announce a special “Spirit of the Race” competition in conjunction with our good friends at Seagate Technology.

As we all know, without digital storage there is no digital photography and Seagate Technology have given us five of their award-winning FreeAgent™ external hard disk drives as prizes for the best photos submitted by ClubSNAP members.

The competition seeks to capture the ‘Spirit’ of the race in Singapore – not just the race itself but the excitement and activities around Singapore. We are looking for photos that show how the event has captured the hearts and the imagination of Singaporeans. Whether its street celebrations, race day parties, the preparations, corporate functions, or just people out and about enjoying the excitement – it’s all about capturing the unique qualities Singapore brings to this international event.

First place winner will receive a Seagate 1 Terabyte FreeAgent™ Desk Drive and the four runner- ups will each receive a Seagate 320GB FreeAgent™ Go Drive.

First prize:-


Four runner-up prizes:-

I think regarding all copyright for F1 belongs to F1 organiser. Do we have the right to reproduce?
You cannot sell the pictures you took at the race for a profit. But there is nothing blocking you from submitting your own personal pictures, that you yourself took, for a competition.
