In order to continuously promote Cyberjaya, Cyberview Sdn Bhd has organized a Digital Photography Contest for 2010 with total prizes valued at RM3,750 (unless my calculation is wrong). The tagline for this competition is “Discover Cyberjaya” and the theme is “Cyberjaya: Images of Glory”. Photos can be submitted centred around the following topics of interest,
- People and Residents: Shots that depict lifestyles of people around Cyberjaya, either students, workers or people living in Cyberjaya.
- Architecture: Pictures that portray the numerous buildings and facilities around Cyberjaya including development in progress.
- Nature: Greenery, and other beautiful sceneries.
I feel that this is a good opportunity for photography enthusiast as the prize money is small and hence will not attract the more serious or professional photographers. Although the theme of “Images of Glory” seems inappropriate for the topics of interest, it is nevertheless an “entry level” competition (I guess).
Maybe I will test out of Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 MACRO on the “Nature” topic? Application form can be downloaded here (stored on google docs!!!).
