The Unforgotten

Montage 2007, the annual photography competition organized by the NUS Photographic Society is here again. This year, the theme is The Unforgotten.

According to the Montage 2007 website:

“This year, through the theme “The Unforgotten”, NUSPS aims to provide an opportunity for participants to recall special moments which had been forgotten, in the busy and ever-changing city of Singapore.

Why “The Unforgotten”?
The reason for selecting this theme is because the society believes that many people, especially the younger generation, no longer appreciate the past. Through this year’s Montage the society hopes to generate awareness amongst the participants that the past is not “forgotten” but rather the past should be “unforgotten”, which people should cherish.”

There are two categories of competition.

1) Open Competition: For all ages. Online submission to until 26th May 2007, 2359h. Submission is fully online only and only digital prints are accepted. Each person can submit up to 4 photos.
2) Youth Competition: For persons below 25 years of age. One day competition from 25th May, 1800hr to 26th May, 1800hr.

For more information please refer to the Montage 2007 website.

Personally, I wonder what would suffice for the theme of Unforgotten. Indeed in the changing landscape of Singapore, so many things are constantly being forgotten. In fact, change is probably the only constant in Singapore. So how do we recognize something that we have already forgotten? That’s a question that calls for some great reflection.
