I promised a friend I would post this rather urgent request. Singapore’s Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts are putting together a coffee-table book of photos to give delegates attending the IMF-World Bank Meetings here in September. They’re looking for photos to put in this book as well as possibly put into a 365 day pictoral calender.
Seems that the submissions have been less than stellar. In particular, they’re quite eager to get some great pictures depicting Singaporeans eating together, Singaporean food, and other gorgeous food-related themes.
Here’s a short write-up as provided to me by the Ministry:
Coffee table pictorial book on Singapore
Come this September, the world’s top bankers will converge in Singapore for the International Monetary Fund-World Bank meeting to discuss fiscal and monetary policies that will impact the world.
With 16,000 delegates and journalists visiting Singapore, we intend to mark the occasion by presenting our guests with a high-end coffee table pictorial which will be a fitting memento for them to remember us by. The pictorial will feature photos of the activities that ordinary Singaporeans engage in, among which eating ranks as one of the tops.
MICA, which oversees the production of the pictorial, calls on all Singaporeans to support this national cause by sending their best photographic works on the subject of food and/or eating to:
National Marketing Department
5th floor MICA Building
140 Hill Street
(Attn: Mr Foo Siang Luen)
Send photos in CD format or in print (4R) together with your name, address and contact number. All submissions must reach MICA by 2 May 2006. Photographers whose works are selected will be acknowledged in the book, a copy of which will be presented to them as a token of appreciation. For details, please contact Mr Foo at 68379862 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
