The Straits Times Samsung Galaxy S9 After Dark Photo Challenge is coming to its conclusion.

Week 8's location of Little India has plenty of interesting and colourful subjects to photograph. But the area is also vast and diverse, which makes it both easy and difficult to make images.

And so, it is another a big thank you to all who went down to Little India and express their creativity with their entries this week.

But there can only be one winner. And we are pleased to announce that for the Little India challenge, the winner is Susan Lim. We like the kaleidoscopic effect that her photograph of the Sri Srinivasa Permumal Temple exudes.

If you missed the previous challenges, there is still one more chance to win the Samsung Galaxy S9+ (64GB) worth $1,348.

As previously mentioned, each week's challenge is unique. If your photos are good enough, you can win this one last Samsung Galaxy S9+. This is your last chance.

For the final challenge, the location is the Singapore Sports Hub. This includes the area from the National Stadium to the Singapore Indoor Stadium along with the surrounding precincts. Explore this picturesque area at night, and you will be surprised by what you can find to photograph.

Again, there is no restriction on the brand of the smartphone used, except the photo must be taken on a smartphone camera. Please ensure the photo's IPTC data can be read.
