8 September 2014 - In celebration of Singapore’s 50th birthday, NParks has announced a new year-long national photo competition on themes surrounding our City in a Garden.
The ‘Singapore Garden Photographer of the Year’ photo competition aims to create a greater appreciation and awareness of our natural heritage through the lens of the community. Participants can submit photographs of what they think best represents the four themes: “Singapore Botanic Gardens – Celebrating Our Heritage”, “Trees, Forests and Parks”, “People and Nature” and “Our BiodiverCITY”.
The overall best winner will walk away with a Nikon D610 kit, camera lens, and $3,000 cash. First prize winners of each theme will also win a Nikon D5300 kit and $2,000 in cash.
Participate in all four themes and submit up to a maximum of 10 photographs per theme.
SBG – Celebrating our Heritage
Rediscover Singapore Botanic Gardens’ rich cultural and historical heritage. In support of Singapore Botanic Gardens’ bid to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site, “Singapore Botanic Gardens – Celebrating Our Heritage” will be the very first theme for the competition.
Submission closing date: 7 January 2015
Trees, Forests and Parks
Singapore is known for its tree-lined roads and matrix of parks and green spaces. Embark on any of our walking or cycling trails in our parks and nature reserves to get up close and personal with nature and greenery.
Submission closing date: 28 January 2015
People and Nature
Let your photos convey the stories of how people connect with nature – whether it is utilising our green spaces for leisure or play, to be involved in nature conservation or nature-related activities.
Submission closing date: 8 April 2015
The lush green cover and warm tropical climate make Singapore a haven for rich biodiversity despite our small land mass. Our local flora and fauna, which may often be hidden from the public eye, are waiting to be captured and revealed through your lenses.
Submission closing date: 29 April 2015
