SONY Alpha Creators 4.0 Contest
Sony’s highly anticipated annual Alpha Creators contest is back for its fourth edition this year
Sony’s highly anticipated annual Alpha Creators contest is back for its fourth edition this year, with the theme, “Our World In Colour”. Boasting both a photo and video contest for the very first time, content creators are being invited to capture and celebrate the beauty and vibrancy of Singapore, especially after a year of extraordinary change in 2020. Sony has always been committed to delivering Kando and Anshin to people and societies across the world through the pursuit of technology and new challenges.
The contest thus aims to bring together both amateur and seasoned creatives to challenge boundaries and rediscover the passion, positivity and inspiration that is all around us. “The Sony Alpha Creators contest was first conceptualised to provide a platform for creative communities to find and showcase their voices. In a world increasingly seeking community and connection, we want to continue creating new and exciting experiences that encourage both professional and aspiring content creators to discover a renewed sense of appreciation for the world we live in today and tell their stories through the mediums of photography and videography,” said Nathaniel Neo, Head, Digital Imaging Marketing, Sony Electronics (Singapore).
The contest will be judged by four key opinion leaders across both the photography and videography industries. Judges for the Photography contest include professional photographer, Lee Aiksoon and creative designer, Aristelle Siew; and the judges for the Videography contest are Fashion and Lifestyle videographer Jaegen Tan and filmmaker and vlogger, Shawne Koh.
How to Participate From 20 August to 26 September 2021, 11:59pm SGT, participants must submit their entry – comprising of a single photo or a series of up to five (5) images pertaining to the theme; or a video no longer than one minute, with a caption explaining how the colour scheme captured inspires their creativity. The entry must be submitted on Instagram, using the dedicated hashtag #SonyWorldInColour and tagging @SonySingapore. Participants must also follow @SonySingapore and make their Instagram accounts public in order to qualify. Four semi-finalists – two each from the photography and videography categories – will be selected to enter Phase 2 of the contest. Photography semi-finalists will go head-to-head to produce a one-of-a-kind photo series, whilst the videography semi-finalists will be challenged to create one final outstanding video. The grand prize winners for each category will be crowned on 27 October 2021, and 10 honourable mention submissions will be featured on its digital gallery the same day.
