Calling for Entries! Harper’s BAZAAR X ION Photography Awards

Harper’s BAZAAR & ION Orchard Photography Awards 2013 is back again!

For the theme this year, it’s all about Singapore. The idea is to find out what makes us “Uniquely Singapore?” and capture the essence of the country’s heritage & culture while still incorporating elements of fashion, lifestyle and the arts. You could be inspired by the coffee shops at Katong, the night lights of Chinatown or the nightlife at Clarke Quay.

This is the first time that the competition is taken outside of ION the mall itself and photographers are free to shoot at other locations. However, you need to submit 200 to 300 word description of how ION Orchard has inspired your shoot thematically along with three to five digital images.

The competition is open to all amateur or emerging professional photographers currently residing in Singapore and not currently working for a nationwide publication. The winner will be judged on his/her creativity, originality, effort and ability to produce work that is on par with the standards of Harper’s BAZAAR.

The winning photographers will stand to receive the following prizes:

1st Prize: An exotic 5D/4N full-package stay for two in a Spa Pool Villa at Hilton Shillim Estate Retreat & Spa, India (worth over S$6,000), a Balmain Watch Elegance (worth $1,400) and $2,000 ION Orchard shopping vouchers.

2nd prize: A relaxing 4D/3N full package stay for two in the King Ocean Suite at Hilton Pattaya, Thailand (worth over S$6,000), a Balmain Watch Elegance (worth $1,120) and $1,000 ION Orchard shopping vouchers.

PLUS, a chance to get your winning work published in the prestigious title. Lastly, remember the deadline for submission is on 8 May!
