A video competition to showcase flora and fauna in Singapore is being held until Sep 30.

Organised by the National Youth Achievement Award (NYAA) council and the National Parks Board (NParks), the City in Nature video challenge aims to showcase Singapore’s commitment to preserving and enhancing the environment.

Three winners will receive $1,000, $500 and $300 in cash respectively, while seven merit prize winners will each receive $100.

There are three categories in the competition – Green Spaces, Biodiversity and Gardening.

For Green Spaces, the lush greenery of any garden, park or urban landscape should be included in the video entry. To showcase the diversity of life in Singapore’s ecosystem, a variety of animal and plant species should be included in the Biodiversity entries.

The efforts and practices of nature conservation should be displayed in video entries for the Gardening sub-category.

To be deemed eligible, video entries must be at least 30 seconds long and should not exceed two minutes. They should also follow a vertical full screen format (9:16 ratio).

Participants must post their entries onto their own public TikTok account and include the ‘#CityInNatureSG’ and ‘#NYAAxNParks’ hashtags in their post’s captions.

The video will need to remain publicly accessible throughout the competition.

Entries should also comply with TikTok’s community guidelines and contain either music made available by the platform for commercial use or original music by the participant.

A maximum of 10 entries is allowed for each participant. However, all entries must be collated into one competition form submission.

The entries will be judged according to its relevance to the City in Nature theme, video quality, creativity and engagement received online. Results will be announced in October.

The competition is open to all people residing in Singapore. More information about the submission process can be found via NPark’s website.
