April F.U.N. outing change of date and time, plus a very special guest…
[written by Bluffname]
Please note the following changes:
Date and Time: Saturday, 17th April 2010 3:00pm till 5:00pm. Followed by coffee / tea / snacks.
The change is to welcome a special guest MR. DAVID TAY P.C. (JP, PBM, Hon.FPSS, Hon.EFIAP, FRPS), who has agreed to be our Exhibition Guide for the outing. David is President of the Photographic Society of Singapore (PSS), a post that he has held for many years. He is a very accomplished photographic artist who has won many awards and is also frequently called upon to judge many Photographic competitions. He was, for example, the chief judge in last year’s Ngee Ann Photograph of the Year contest (which I won).
In 1982, David was the first photographer to receive the Cultural Medallion, Singapore’s highest recognition for achievement in the arts. Since then, only four other photographers have been accorded similar honors – Tan Lip Seng (1985), Chua Soo Bin (1988), Foo Tee Jun (1989) and Teo Bee Yan (2004).
David and another PSS member George Low have agreed to walk us through the exhibition and comment on photos that they consider noteworthy. After that we shall adjourn for coffee / snacks at Liang Court.
So do join in this educational opportunity. I need to let David know how many people will be turning up, so kindly list your names below and PM me your contact if you are new member who has not joined our F.U.N. activities before. Non-Fujifilm Users are welcome as guests, even though this is organized as a F.U.N. activity. But for better interaction, we would like to limit the group to about 10, or maybe, maximum 15 people.
If you wish to join this outing, please email your name and contact number to FUJIFILMFUN@GMAIL.COM.
