Capture Nature: Photography Competition
Capture Nature is an annual environmental digital photography competition initiated by a group of students from Ngee Ann Polytechnic. Started in 2007, the event allows the passion youths have for photography to be channelled towards environmental awareness, conservation and action. This year, the competition will be held in conjunction with the ASEAN+3 Youth Festival, a youth-for-youth initiative supported by the National Youth Council, Singapore.
The theme of this competition is “Global Warming”. Citizens or Permanent Residents from ASEAN + 3 countries who are aged between 18 and 25 are eligible to participate.
We would like to invite you and your ASEAN+3 friends to participate in this competition. The youths will have to submit softcopies of their photos, including a small description stating why they choose the photo, together with the entry forms from 15th Apr 2008 to 31st May 2008.
This environmental digital photography competition is initiated to allow youths to learn about environmental issues through experiential learning. The objectives of this competition are:
a. Promote better understanding about the current environmental situations of ASEAN+3 countries and in turn promote better understanding among the youth of ASEAN nations through photo taking,
b. Provide a catalyst to spark an interest in participating in environmental activities by exposing youth to the nature and
c. Educate youths on the impact of global warming.
Pls refer to the website for more details on the competition and the rules and regulations. The application form is also downloadable from: www.aseanyouthfestival.org/capturenature.
