ICONOGRAPHY 2015 Conference & Photography Competition

Brought to you by the Hwa Chong Photographic Society

CONFERENCE Iconography 2015 is a photographic conference that aims to enrich participants in both techniques about photography as well as appreciation of photography as an art and a future career. This year, we have invited several distinguished speakers such as Ms C.S. Ling, a local wildlife photographer who has won several accolades and Mr Goh Kim Hui, the president of the Photographic Society of Singapore. Additionally, we have also arranged for an experiential session, where participants will be able to try out lens from Nikon. We hope that through these hands-on sessions, participants will be enriched greatly. A few other things to look out for would be a free sensor cleaning service by Nikon Singapore as well as a NIKKOR lens testing booth, along with fun prizes to be won at the Nikon Photo Booth!Hwa Chong Photographic Society is also proud to announce that the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) will be our beneficiary for this event. We will be holding an exhibition featuring photos of MINDS and their story during our conference, so be sure to look out for that!Iconography 2015 promises to be both an exciting and beneficial conference and we do sincerely hope that you’ll join us on the 18th of April!
