Clear Channel Singapore has joined forces with Canon to organise a street photography competition to encourage the public to take photos of an alternative side of Singapore.


It hopes the competition will improve the public’s commuting journeys by providing content that entertains and delights.

The competition, which is named ‘OuterEgo’ to reflect a person’s alternative personality, runs till November 30 and the top three winning entries will be announced on December 14.

Explaining why it is holding this competition, Clear Channel said that as an out-of-home media owner, it has the responsibility to improve the public space, by providing valuable infrastructures such as bus shelters, transport information, way-finding, and other useful amenities and conveniences.

It hopes the competition will improve the public’s commuting journeys by providing content that entertains and delights.

“The OuterEgo street photography competition provides a canvas to showcase the work of the street photographer in every one of us. We can all be street photographers; the subjects are all around us every day. We look forward to seeing new street photography talent emerge.” said Kelly Khoo, the chief executive officer of Clear Channel Singapore.

Edwin Teoh, the head of marketing for Singapore Operations at Canon Singapore added: “Canon believes that photography is a powerful tool that brings communities closer together and OuterEgo 2018 is a fantastic opportunity to explore and showcase creative interpretations of our everyday moments.”
