Welcome to APAW II! This year we will have 6 themes spread over the year. Each theme will be opened by a guest speaker who will share what his interpretations for the theme are during the first week of the opening month.
After 8 weeks we will have a joint sharing session where the guest speaker will come down to talk more about the theme and we will invite YOU to come down and share with your interpretations of the themes. For those of you who wish to get critiqued, our guest speaker will then share his thoughts on your photos.
At the end of each night we will hold a small lucky draw for all attendee's. For the opening month and in support of 30 years of Total Defence, the theme will be "Because you played a part". Photos submitted during this theme will be curated by a panel and chosen photos will be displayed via projected slideshow at the National Museum of Singapore from 15 to 23 Feb 2014, during the period of the Total Defence interactive exhibition “TD30: An Experiential Showcase”.
We will also invite everyone who submits down to the bi-monthly gathering to be held during the last week of February.
For this opening theme submissions will be accepted up till 5th February 2014 @2359Do read the terms and conditions for submission over from the album description.
To encourage continuous participation, people who are able to submit consistently for all 6 themes will be entered into a grand draw at years end and stand a chance to win up to $1000 worth of prizes.

A farmer’s horse ran away. His neighbors gathered upon hearing the news and said sympathetically, “That’s such bad luck.”
“Maybe,” the farmer replied.
The horse returned on his own the next morning, and brought seven wild horses with it. “Look how many more horses you have now,” the neighbors exclaimed. “How lucky!”
“Maybe,” the farmer replied.
The next day, the farmer’s son attempted to ride one of the wild horses, was thrown, and broke his leg. “How awful,” the neighbors said. “It looks like your luck has turned for the worse again.”
The farmer simply replied, “Maybe.”
The following day, military officers came to town to conscript young men into the service. Seeing the son’s broken leg, they rejected him. The neighbors gathered round the farmer to tell him how fortunate he was.
“Maybe,” said the farmer.
