NYAA Council & PUB have organised a water photography contest for the public, see details below.
Water through My Lens competition is back again! In 2010, we saw over 800 fantastic entries from the community as our participants sought to capture the essence of the meaning of water for the Singapore community, in celebration of World Water Day.
NYAA Council, in partnership with PUB – our national water agency and Keep Singapore Beautiful Movement (KSBM), have organised a photography competition entitled “Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters through My Lens.”
The objectives of the photography competition are to raise awareness among Singaporeans about the Active, Beautiful, Clean (ABC) water sites and its related activities to motivate them to take photos that will help position these sites as a community asset for leisure and recreation.
The competition will also display powerful and emotive imagery that will demonstrate the freedom, the joy and the possibilities of enjoying our local water sites to the public. At the same time, it will also provide a platform to showcase photographic talents among Singaporeans.
The Photography Competition is divided into three categories and the winners of each category will receive attractive prizes. The categories are as follows:
1. Children Category – Age 12 and below
2. Young Adults Category – Age 20 and below
3. Open Category – Age 21 and above
Please send your entries in a CD/DVD to the National Youth Achievement Award (NYAA) Council, 151 Lorong Chuan, #06-01B, New Tech Park (Lobby A) Singapore 556741 by Friday, 4 March 2011 before 5 pm. Click on these hyperlinks to download your Entry_Form, Rules & Regulations and ABC Water Sites.
A Prize Presentation Ceremony will be held on Sunday, 20 March 2011 at the Marina Barrage. Guest-of-Honour, Mr Goh Chok Tong, Senior Minister, will present the prizes to the winners.
Winning photos will be published on the PUB, NYAA and KSBM websites as well as in the PURE Magazine and NYAA Award News. They will also be exhibited in various parts of Singapore.
