Singapore Exhibition 2012POST, the latest creative endeavour by Emaho Exhibition, was held in Singapore between 6th and 10th February 2012, was a grand affair and most definitely stuck to the magazine’s goal to bring about a “creative.revolution”. With entries from over 23 countries, the event aimed at showcasing the works of 50 talented, amateur photographers from around the world, providing them the platform to be recognised at a global level, selected by a panel of incredibly skilled judges. With over 4000 entries, the response that POST gathered was heart-warming. The theme for the exhibition was street and travel photography. The top 50 from among the entries were selected and given the privilege of being showcased at the Home Club in Singapore. The exhibition was preceded by four days of enthralling events that included a photo walk around Little India, Clarky and Haji Lane, and a photography talk by eminent photographers like Danny Santos. The photo walk to Chinatown gathered a large number of enthusiastic locals who were eager to join Emaho. The exhibition also marked the launch of the magazine’s first print edition, the first copy of which was launched on the 10th of February at the venue. The event was graced with the presence of some senior faculty members from the Raffles University, Singapore including professor of photography, Alfonso Bonilla and Paula Silvan. Post also gathered immense support from local photographers like Nats Manuel . Post’s international supporters included ace lens-men from across the globe including Raghu Rai, Mark Carey, Mimi Mitsou and Alexandra Demenkova. The exhibition that saw a footfall of over 150 people was also visited by a number of well-wishers of the fifty lucky photographers. The fifty pictures were donated by Post to Non Profit Organizations in Singapore after the exhibition.
The largely youth powered organisation has just one aim, to bring out the talented amateurs and provide them with a global platform for recognition. With the exhibition at Singapore having been an enormous success, Emaho plans on holding POST every six months at locations across the world. So here’s looking forward to seeing the POSTMAN travel the world with his creative ideas, doing what Emaho does best. In fact rumour has it, the Postman will reach New Delhi soon!
