Photography Competition 2014
Trees form the backbone of our City in a Garden. Lining roads and offering shade in parks and gardens, they also soften and beautify our cityscape. They make our lives more pleasant by helping us feel more connected to nature. As providers of food, oxygen and shelter, trees also give life to other living things which depend on them for survival.
What is this competition about?
This is a photography competition to encourage young artists to express their love for trees and nature, and through their photographs, allow people to appreciate trees from a fresh perspective.
What is the theme?
“My Special Tree”
Do you have a tree that’s special to you? One that you hold close to your heart or has been there during the special moments of your life? Capture your special tree in a photograph, together with the people or objects that are meaningful to you, and share your story with us.
