SWAM Competition
Shutterbugs with an Attitude – Malaysia’s (SWAM) inaugural Photography exhibition competition in collaboration with KLPAC will take place in December 2009.

Open to all photographers residing in Malaysia, submissions will end on 15 September 2009 and must suit the theme.

The Theme

Beautiful Imperfections

Our society has a set of perceived ideas for beauty, one size, one look, one age – anything out of the box and they are frowned upon.

Your challenge for this theme is to see imperfections as beauty and change the mindset on the perceived ideas of beauty.

The idea is to show that everyone can be beautiful and it is the photographers duty to show them on their best side. Show how ordinary people are beautiful too. Let their inner beauty shine in your photographs.

So we’re looking for submission of photos of plump, old, super thin, non model/ model like, non muscular, wrinkles, disability and any kind of physical imperfections set by society.

People who take part in this exhibition must believe in the theme as you will be required to sell the idea to visitors at the exhibition.
