DBS Bank revealed the three most liked photos of Singapore’s first community generated story using Instagram and Vine, held during the DBS Marina Regatta 2013 which were posted on popular social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Vine and Twitter.

 Phoneographers demonstrated their mobile photography and videography skills on a wide variety of subjects at Singapore’s biggest water sports festival which spanned two weekends, starting with the Dragon Boat Races from 18-19 May, and concluding with the Bay Festival on 24-25 May.

Phoneographers had the opportunity to capture exciting races where more than 130 international and local teams paddled against one another in the waters of Marina Bay. They also recorded festival-goers taking part in fun-filled land and water activities, a dazzling display of cosplay as well as rousing drum performances and concerts by popular local artists. Over the two weekends, over 3,000 photos and videos were uploaded, and the three most liked photos were decided by the total number of likes via the social media platforms.

These three contributors with the most liked photos have each won a degustation dining experience for two, worth SGD 600, at Restaurant ANDRE – Singapore's best restaurant, as listed in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2013.

DBS Marina Regatta 2013 came to a close after two weekends of exciting dragon boating races which attracted top national teams from the region, as well as teams from schools, clubs and the community. Keeping to its promise of bringing people to the bay and the bay to the people, around 1,000 members of the public had the opportunity to experience for themselves the fun of dragon boating, kayaking and sailing free of charge on the final day of the event.

DBS Bank is investing SGD10 million over the next three years to enable people from all walks of life to enjoy Marina Bay. The initiative is part of the bank’s continuing efforts to engage the community, enliven the Bay, and to share the vibrancy and dynamism of Singapore’s new financial downtown with a wider population
