CANCELLATION of Singapore Night Hunt 2014

It came as a sad news that Singapore Night Hunt 2014 was cancelled. I received an email yesterday late afternoon from the organizer. Their reason for cancellation was due to the unfavorable weather during these past few days.

I recalled the first Night Hunt 4 years ago, it was raining too. It rained during the event briefing and then stopped. It rained again at around mid-night hour. Not those torrential type. However this year-end monsoon season is coming at the wrong time. It did rain today during the late morning towards noon hour period and then rained again in the afternoon. Just light shower. There was another short showering an hour ago (evening time around 7:00PM SGT).

At the time of writing this blog, weather is partly cloudy and based on reliable weather forecast, there's a possible thunderstorms with rain at 12-midnight.

Personally I would suggest the organizer to collaborate with Singapore Night Festival, in joint to organize the Singapore Night Hunt, which I think it is more relevant. Alternatively they can organize the photo-marathon contest prior to the official opening of SIPF (Singapore International Photography Festival). Or they can organize during the dry season, not necessary have to be held during SIPF. It can be a separate event.

Well guess we have to wait for another 4 years for the next night photo-marathon contest. We'll see.
