1. THEME ANNOUNCED
Once the theme is announced on the first day of the quarter, you have 3 months to submit images related to the theme.
Each participant can submit a maximum of 12 images per quarter (maximum 4 entries per category in Open Section).
If you are NPSS member, you will be able to participate in the contest for free by logging into your paid account.
If you are a member of the public, you have the option of signing up for a NPSS membership to enjoy the benefits of a member or pay an entry fee of S$20 per quarter.
2. JUDGING PROCESS
The images will be judged by a panel comprising of industry professionals and nature photography experts.
Both the image and the write up will be taken into consideration so do pay as much attention to the write up as is for the image.
3. RESULTS ANNOUNCED
Winners will be notified via email after 6 weeks from the closing date. You will be requested to send us the original raw file to ensure that the competition rules have been met.
The top 10 images per category for the quarter will then be announced on the website.
4. END OF 3 QUARTERS
Selection of the grand prize winners follows a championship scoring system (based on the top 10), where by the top entry per category per quarter gets 10 points, and the 10th place gets 1. Each participant can have only 1 shortlisted entry per category per quarter.
Entries that are not within the top 10 are not considered in the tabulation of grand prize.
The tip is to submit in as many categories and in as many quarters as possible to stand a bigger chance of winning the overall grand prize of S$3,000 and S$4,000 CANON e-Voucher.
