Themes

Given that we're all spending so much more time at home & in Singapore owing to the global pandemic, we've decided to use Singlish words as the broad themes this year, namely:

Makan (Food)
Kampung (Community/Home)
Shiok (Great Experiences)
WILDCARD: Participants who do not want to adhere to the random keyword may submit images under a special WILDCARD entry but will only be entitled for a winner tier prize consideration.
Capitol Singapore Theme: Participants who would like to throw their hat in for a bonus theme sponsored by Perennial holdings can submit images in/of the Capitol Singapore/Theatre, Capitol Kempinski Hotel or Chijmes.

SG Virtual Video Background Challenge

Theme: SINGAPORE ANEW

  • A representation of the #Covid19 times we live in today and a resource for Singaporeans to proudly showcase to each other and the world what home is beyond the cliché MBS/merlion symbols.
  • Participants will be able to tap on JRC's RentTag programme for just $2 and gain access to an equipment package to capture sights around Singapore that can be either moving (and still loopable) or static video
  • A video montage of 56 selected virtual backgrounds will be compiled and exhibited online & offline alongside a local singer/songwriter's music for National Day.
  • Past video Projects: SG in slow motion | 'Boring' Singapore 360/VR Collective Video Project

Jon Chiang

(Landscape Photographer)

Jon Chiang is an avid landscape photographer who has been passionately pursuing the hobby for the last eight years. Growing up in the densely-populated city-state of Singapore, being surrounded by skyscrapers and public housing was no stranger to him. As a result, Jon incorporates these elements into most of his photographs. However, Jon still enjoys venturing out into the last vestiges of open landscape and seascape remaining in Singapore, soaking in the subtle and sublime beauty of nature. Given the faced-paced and ever-changing visage of Singapore, Jon strives to capture the essence of these changes, lest they be lost in time forever.

Jon's works have been featured in publications from around the world. His photography have been exhibited in group exhibitions conducted by Noise Singapore, and has won both regional and local awards.
