"Heartstrings of Singapore" Photography Competition Workshop


To encourage the public to capture - through their lens - the Chinese culture and Singapore's multi-culture diversity, Singapore Federation of Chinese Clan Associations and the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre are once again organising the "Heartstrings of Singapore" Photography Competition. Registation is now open, and ends on 31st January 2020. There are three categories for participants to take part in, namely 'Singapore's Chinese Culture', 'Singapore Multi Culture Diversity' and 'Heartstrings Special Series - The Spirit of Singapore: Men at Work'. This competition is co-organised by Sam Kiang Huay Kwan, Singapore Amoy Association and Singapore Lam Ann Association.

In collaboration with the "Heartstrings of Singapore" Photography Competition, the organisers have specially organised a workshop on "Digital Photo Editing Techniques", happening on 15th September 2019. The guest speaker, Mr. Teo Yong Kang, is a renowned photographer in Singapore who has clinched over 1,000 international photography awards. In his earlier days as a photographer, Mr. Teo specialised in darkroom colour processing, still photography and model studio shooting. Of late, he has delved into and fallen in love with digital imaging. Not only is Mr. Teo an experienced photographer, he has also been awarded Fellowship and Associateship by over ten local and overseas photography societies, with multiple outstanding works being showcased at various exhibitions.

Besides the seminar on photography, participants can look forward to being immersed in a taichi wushu setting and practising their photography skills by capturing photographs of the specially-invited models dressed in ancient Chinese clothing.

08:30am Registration
09:00am Outdoor Photoshoot
