National Primary School Photography Competition
This year, Fuhua Primary School organized the 8th edition of the National Primary School Photography Competition. In alignment with Singapore’s commitment to United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2030 and Climate Action, the school reviewed the environmental education programme and aligned with United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals 2030, focusing specifically 6 out of the 17 goals which emphasizes sustainable living. As such, the theme for this year’s National Photography Competition is "Sustainable Singapore".
For this year’s competition, two new categories were added. They were the Photojournalism category and the People’s Choice Award. For the Photojournalism Category, it focused on photography ethics and story-telling. The participants will need to demonstrate the “know-how” of initiating a photo-documentary. For the People’s Choice Award, the intent is to recognize the voices of the participants as they are able to vote for the non-winning entries of their peers.
A total of 249 students from 42 schools have submitted their entries for the competition. Two of our school’s participants, Sio Koon Seng Zavier (P4 Diligence) and Rohan Srivatsav Palakurthi (P6 Care) did us proud by winning the Budding Photographer Category and a Merit Prize in the Open Category respectively.
