Enter the Expat Living Photo Competition 2012


If you love taking photos and you love flying to Bali for a holiday in a luxury villa, then here is some great news – the announcement of our fabulous first prize in the Expat Living Photo Competition 2012.


Four return economy class tickets between Singapore and Bali on KLM Royal Dutch Airlines


• Five nights’ accommodation in Villa Samadhana in Bali


That’s right! If we choose your photo as the best of the bunch in our fourth annual photography competition, you’ll enjoy a five-night holiday in a luxury villa in Bali including return airfares for four people!

This year, we are again looking for photos in five favourite categories:


The categories speak for themselves, though for the CITY category we would prefer images taken in Singapore itself – anything from a plane taking off at sunset at Changi to a night out Clarke Quay or a nature snapshot from the “Green Corridor” along the railway line to Malaysia. Photos taken in other cities around the world can instead be entered in the TRAVEL category. And here’s an inside tip: the FOOD category tends to attract fewer entries than the rest – so, if you got a great shot from a hawker centre, or a home cooking session, or an hors d’oeuvre in a fancy hotel, send it in!

Shots can be funny, bizarre, posed, artistic, frivolous, anything you like. Just email or post them to us, then sit back and wait for your 15 minutes of photographic fame! 

It’s as easy as emailing us with your favourite photos. And remember, the closing date is 21 September!

How to Enter (the short version)

Email your favourite photos to contribute@expatliving.sg


How to Enter (the long version)

All photos must be in JPG format (ideally between 1MB and 5MB in size). You can email them (to contribute@expatliving.sg with subject ‘Photo Competition 2012’) or
post a CD to our office: Photo Competition 2012, 40 Jalan Pemimpin, #02-07 Tat Ann Building, Singapore 577185.

There is a maximum of 10 photos per entrant (and 2 photos per category).

Photos should be accompanied by a text document (no embedded photos, please) with captions of not more than 20 words per photo, giving a title and perhaps some background information about the shot.

Original files (digital files or scanned photos) must be kept for reference; they may be needed to demonstrate that this is your own work.

Each photo sent by email must not exceed 5MB in size. If your photo is larger than 5MB, please reduce the size, and we will ask for a larger version if you have a winning entry.

Photos taken on a camera-phone are acceptable. Images taken on film must be scanned into digital format by the entrant.

Some digital manipulation of photos is acceptable (e.g., cropping, sharpening).

Closing date for entries is 21 September 2012. Results will be announced in the November issue of Expat Living.
