A little while back, I wrote about using ColorVision‘s Spyder2 system. In that post, I mentioned I would be working with Cathay Photo, my favourite Singapore-based camera store, to help publicize this cool color management system. Well, here’s just one way we’re hoping to grab your attention… AND also get you involved. Plus, we’re giving way oodles of amazing free stuff!
Ever notice how looking at bright and rich colors can sometimes make us feel better, more energetic or suddenly more festive? Whether it’s a bright red umbrella on a dark rainy day, your friend’s fun summer dress or a beautiful plate of fresh food, bright colors have the power to lift us up and remind us to enjoy life.
Cathay Photo, in partnership with ColorVision and Chubby Hubby and with sponsorship from Olympus and Wacom, is celebrating the power of colors through this photography contest, hosted on Chubby Hubby. Further, photos will be judged by a panel of well-known photographers, creative wizards, Cathay Photo staff, Chubby Hubby and ColorVision’s own Mr Sam Ng, their in-house Technical Marketing Manager. Our special guest judges are superstar photographer Russel Wong, acclaimed and award-winning photographer Tay Kay Chin, ubercool photographer Andrew Loiterton and creative genius Chris Lee, the man behind Asylum.

To enter, simply submit up to a maximum of 3 photographs that you’ve taken and that you feel celebrate color. To submit photos, you will need to join Flickr (I’m assuming anyone with a digital camera should be a member — after all, it’s free) and then join the Group that I have created for this contest. It is called Celebrating Color Photo Contest — you can go there by clicking here. Once you have joined, upload the photo or photos you intend to submit. Once on Flickr, click on them one at a time, click on the “send to group” button and add them to the Celebrating Photo Contest group. It’s that simple.
Then email Chubby Hubby at aun@chubbyhubby to say you have entered. Please note this is mandatory! You have to email me to be considered. You MUST include the name(s) of your submission(s) (so I can identify it on the Flickr group), your Flickr username, your own full name and hp number. This contest is only open to Singaporean-residents.
You can start submitting photos immediately. Closing date is 10 July 2007. We will announce the winners on 17 July.
