As a part of the celebration of the International Year of Biodiversity, NParks held a photo competition in March. I was pretty bummed that Bryan and I couldn't participate because the contest was only open to citizens and permanent residents, but so it goes. The results are up now, and some of the photos are truly amazing. You can see a feature of the photos here, but make sure that you scroll down- there's a gray down arrow at the bottom of the photos that's a little hard to see. Be sure to check out the Open Category Grand Prize winner, Steven Tor's amazing photo of an otter in action. If you're Singaporean (that is, if you have an NRIC number), you can vote on the photos as part of a voter's choice round of the competition. Just by voting, you become eligible for some pretty cool prizes, like a new iPod Touch!
In addition to the web feature, there's also an exhibition of the photos going on Orchard Road, outside Mandarin Gallery. The exhibition features 55 photos selected from the more than 2,200 entries received by NParks. It will run from now until June 20th.
