This photo was taken the day France won the World Cup in 2018. It was shot as I followed the celebrating crowd from Les Halles to Les Champs-Élysées. My idea of France is of unity, and the sharing of joy. 

Andrea wins a Gourmet Hamper from Classic Deli worth SGD250.


Second Prize (Neo Yuan Khai)

The beauty of France to me lies in its people.
While ancient architectures such as Sacré-Cœur may have centuries in stories, it represents differently to each and everyone of us. Be it a tourist admiring its grandiose, an artist reproducing it on paint, to even strangers celebrating their common interests on a rue. What I enjoyed particularly was to uncover the interpretations and expressions behind each pair of eyes. “This world is but a canvas to our imagination.” – Henry David Thoreau. That is my picturesque view of the City of Love.

Neo wins a bottle of Champagne and the catalogue of the exhibition “Angkor” presented during the 2018 edition of Voilah! France Singapore Festival.


Third Prize (Cheryl Lin)

“Harp player in Dinan: There’s much more to France than just Paris. Smaller towns also have plenty to offer – and to date, strolling around Dinan is one of my fondest memories. It’s quaint, charming and postcard-perfect at every turn. I’ll always remember this moment we chanced upon a harpist playing for himself in a nearly-empty cobblestone street. It was magical.”

Cheryl wins a Campus France goodie bag and the book ”Voyageurs, Explorateurs et Scientifiques – The French and Natural History in Singapore” published during the 2019 edition of Voilah! France Singapore Festival.


The Public Prizes for the most-liked photos on our Facebook page go to Bruce Lim, Suzie Zhang and Kwang Yue Chia. They win a Campus France goodie bag.
