Congratulations to Mdm Wong Beow Leng for winning this year’s Photographer of the Year!
It was 1987 when Madam Wong Beow Leng first took her photography lesson at Singapore Colour Photographic Society (SCPS). 32 years on, photography has become a part of her life. The creativity and versatility demonstrated in her works won her numerous awards and accolades from various international and local photography contests. She was admitted to the Associateship of The Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain (ARPS) in 1990 and the Excellence Distinction of International Federation of Photographic Art (EFIAP) in 2001. She has also achieved The Photographic Society of America’s Master Distinction (MPSA) in 2016, and the Society’s Galaxy 7 Award in Project Colour Images in 2015. In 1997, she was selected as one of the eight women photographers in Singapore who were featured in the “Women in Photography” exhibition.
For years, she has been actively promoting the art of photography by sharing her experience through lectures and talks. She had served as SCPS’s Honorary Secretary from 1990 until 2014, when she was elected as Vice President of the Society, a post that she is still holding today.
