According to the organizers, they are ok with "studio-like" shots, as long as the images are taken in the same night of the Hunt and fits the Night Hunt's themes released on the night. Digital manipulation should be kept to the minimum basic, i.e. adjustment of levels and curves, etc.

Participants are required to upload their selected images direct from their camera's CF cards upon returning to OldSchool in the morning.

If you are keen, remember to register first at the SIPF website.

Maybe a few people can share a car or taxi for the night.
Or just concentrate around the vincinity. It should be more cooling and exciting at night too. ;)

SIPF is actually a non profit self funded festival, all the money we collects from any events we organized goes to ensuring that the next festival programs we can provide free talks or workshop for everybody.

The night hunt is more like a get together event for anybody especially those who wants to avoid the hot sun streaming down to join, and especially it is a deepavali weekend, i'm sure there's plenty to see and capture. Definitely there would be those who wants to aim for the top prizes.

This event will be a great chance to meet and mingle with other photographers! Especially when everyone is back in the morning and having breakfast together! :)
