colour, with a harmonious blend of culture, arts, and architecture. Students are
encouraged to design e-cards that portray Singapore as a city worth visiting.

There will be workshops which participants can choose to attend to learn 2-D
animation skills using the latest Adobe software. These workshops will provide
participants with the technology to produce the e-cards for this competition.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three entries, and there will be merit
prizes and prizes for best Chinese, Malay, and Tamil entries. The finals and
award presentation will be held on Friday, 25 August 2006 at the Singapore
