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

The Great Outdoors
This category’s all about capturing great shots of natural surroundings and some animal action, too.

Think architectural masterpieces, structures, landscapes and urban atmosphere.

Epicurean Adventures
Take us on a journey to discover amazing food and delightful delicacies.

Culture and Heritage
Here, we want to see people in their element, and places saturated in tradition – from monks in ancient wats to the village women in the remote hills of far-off lands.

Family Moments
This category covers special shared moments, images of loved ones recorded in Singapore and beyond.

How to Enter:
You can email photos in JPG format (ideally between 1MB and 5MB in size) to contribute@expatliving.sg (with the subject, “Photo Competition 2016”). There’s a maximum of 10 photos per entrant.

Photos should be accompanied by a text document (no embedded photos, please) with captions of no more than 50 words per photo – giving a title and perhaps some background information on the shot; feel free to share what you loved about the location, or what you like about the photo in general.

You must keep your original files (digital files or scanned photos) 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 (cropping, sharpening and so on).

Announcement of Winners:

Results will be announced in the June 2016 issue of Expat Living.

Be sure to check our website in the coming weeks for further details on the competition and confirmation of our panel of judges.
