Singaporean photographers can now look forward to shooting for a new accolade - a photography contest was launched yesterday with a cash prize of $30,000. This makes it one of the richest arts awards in Singapore.

The contest, called Icon de Martell Cordon Bleu, was launched by the world's oldest cognac house, French brand Martell. The award is partnered with Month of Photography Asia, a themed photography festival that was started in 2002. A jury of local and international photo industry luminaries will choose the winner.

In announcing the award yesterday, Martell said the award is aimed at 'recognising the most outstanding photographer in Singapore who has shown originality of vision presented through thought-provoking ideas, explored new concepts and demonstrated a commitment to their art through the use of the photograhic medium'.
