Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WSR), in cooperation with the Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation (FPPF), is calling for entries to the wildlife photography competition, “Wildlife: Through the Lens”, to capture the connection between humans and wildlife and to highlight the value of wildlife in the earth’s biodiversity.
The winner in this photo contest will be entitled to an all-expense paid 2-day trip to Singapore to visit WRS’s all four parks in July, and take photos of the animals and participate in the inter-market competition with the representatives from other Southeast Asian countries.
There are two stages of the competition:
Round 1, in this announcement, will select the winner from the Philippines. Other countries – Australia, China, India, Indonesia, and Malaysia – will also select their winning photographers at this stage.
The six country winners will then go on to Round 2, the regional finals, where they will go on an all-expenses paid weekend trip to the Wildlife Reserves Singapore parks on July 28-30, 2017. They will capture photos at WRS’s parks and submit to WRS. Judging for this will be done by WRS and public vote (Facebook likes). The overall winner will be announced after the trip to Singapore— on August 23, 2017.
Winning photographer will receive a full camera set, and will have full recognition for his/her accomplishment. His/her photo/s would then be used for the parks’ promotional purposes.
This contest comes on short notice. Deadline for submission of Philippine entries will be on July 2, 2017. This is open to all photographers, both amateur and professional. Stock photos are accepted as long as they are your own photos and you can submit the original high-resolution file.
Submit digital entries to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Size: 1600 pixels on the long side. Each photographer may submit up to five (5) entries.
You will be requested to submit the high-resolution image once you make it to the short list of finalists.
