ABOUT MONTAGE 2019
Montage is an annual nation-wide photography competition organized by The Photographic Society of NUS that aims to celebrate and promote photography among youths. This year, as we celebrate Montage’s 21st Anniversary since its commencement, we hope that you will have a meaningful experience with us as we bring to life Our National Identity through the art of photography.
OUR NATIONAL IDENTITY
This year’s theme, Our National Identity, aims to challenge everyone to showcase what Our National Identity means to you.
Be it through Singapore’s beautiful architecture or through our unique culture and heritage as Singaporeans.
From Singapore’s classic icons such as the Marina Bay Sands to eco-city developments such as MacRitchie Resevior Park or simply embracing the community spirit as people from all races band together in a simple game of badminton at your nearby community center, we want YOU to tell us what Our National Identity is, as Singaporeans.
Our hashtag this year: #MadeInSG aims to illustrate what makes Singaporeans so special.
So, we challenge YOU, to show us what Our National Identity is as Singaporeans. The Montage 2019 Competition starts from the 6th of May till 21st of June 2019.
