I just won the Singapore Best Photography Blog Award 2010. My humble and sincere thanks to the judges and to all who have voted and rallied for me in the Best Photography Blog category of Singapore Blog Awards 2010. To OMY, thank you for providing the platform for all of us to share, learn and meet. Hope to see you all again next year.
To all the winners of other categories, Congratulations and I wish you all great success. Keep blogging.
And of course, thank you to all the sponsors for the prizes too. Unfortunately, I have to miss the Hong Kong trip prize and have to give this to the second place winner, as I have a prior commitment to shoot my friend’s wedding on the 24th of July. I wish all the winners an enjoyable and safe trip. Please shoot for me and share the photos when you are back.
After the award ceremony, I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Tan Swie Hian, an accomplished and famous Singapore’s Cultural Medallion artist. He designed this beautiful trophy for the winners. It’s made of bronze and what a beautiful piece of art! I love it. Mr. Tan shared that in this new age of internet media, one should not forget the basic supporting values we all have to adhere to. And that’s what the three different shapes of legs of the trophy means.
To those who have asked about the trophy, here it is. You must hold it to appreciate it even more. Solid and nicely balanced.
And here is a photo of me with Mr. Tan Swie Hian after the award ceremony.
And oh, before I forget, to all the kind souls who took photos of me during the award ceremony, I would appreciate it if you could send me some of the photos. I would love to keep them. Thank You.
