PictureTogether is back again this August 2018! What is it? It is a photography competition organized by J Rental Centre from 1 June 2018 to 15 July 2018, open to people of all ages. However, this is not some random photography competition! Participants are assigned a certain category from the 3 themes: Old, Now and New Singapore and have to submit pictures relevant to the category.
After all the hard work done by the participants -taking and editing their entries, judgement day is finally here in the form of our 3 judges Goh Kim Hui, Lynus Hee and Jon Chiang. They really had a hard time hand picking the winning entries as all the entries each had their own lovely artistic flair!
What is makes PictureTogether2018 so special and different this year? This year, we have a collective 360/VR video project called ‘Boring Singapore’! 360/VR videos were taken by users of our 360/VR rent tag earlier this year, where 360 cameras sponsored by Hiverlab are passed from one renter to the next, taking videos of seemingly mundane activities around Singapore.
That’s not all! The 360/VR video was uploaded onto our Facebook page and anyone can vote for their favourite 360 video by commenting the timestamp in the comment section. The person with the most votes for their submission gets to bring home prizes as well!
With PictureTogether2018 being a level up from PictureTogether2017, we have to thank our main sponsors Startup Media SG and Hiverlab, the collaboration with our partners The Photographic Society Of Singapore, SCAPE and GIGCO as well as our supports. Last but not least, without our participants, PictreTogether2018 would not be a success.
