It’s not too late to submit your most striking snapshots of Beijing or Hong Kong to the Leica x Swire Hotels photography contest. Organized by my frequent collaborator Juliana Loh, the project invited four of greater China’s most talented young photographers (my friends Madi Ju and Xue Tan among them) to shoot Swire’s main hotels in Beijing and HK – the Opposite House and Upper House, respectively. They will then be judging public photo submissions for prizes like Leica cameras and hotel stays. Also important to note: “Entries from all over the world are accepted as long as they fit into the theme shot in Beijing or Hong Kong, photos do not have to be taken with a Leica Camera.”
Terms and conditions:
-One photo entry per person, 300dpi, 1280 x1024, send to email@example.com
-Name + email address + contact number + Facebook / 微博 username.
-Photos have to be taken in either Beijing or Hong Kong under respective city’s themes.

3 shows will happen in 3 years…
Show 2010 was Wild Gathering in Beijing, 350 people attended our party, we partied happy and wild, looked at artworks, listened to our djing, spoke about everything and nothing.
and as were planning show number 2 in Shanghai – Wilder Gathering on April 7th, because of the sadness and grey mood around us, we have decided to continue, not call it Wilder, but simply call it MILD GATHERING.
