Yesterday evening a journalist contacted me regarding the INSEAD Dash. Thanks to my earlier post on the Dash getting featured on Tomorrow.sg which drew lots of new visitors, we will now get coverage in a national newspaper!
It happened all in a rush. I and the INSEAD Corporate Communications team in Singapore were notified just half a day ago, while the Cabaret was taking place, and news being news (tight deadlines!) I had to mobilise help fast - photo contributions and more interviews with classmates.
There were lots of photos in our shared folder but we seemed to be short on road-crossing scenes. These would have been the funniest, especially from the point of a passer-by who’s on his way to work and is stunned by this tidal wave of costumed freaks running past. I found a few photos of such locals looking stunned, which is pretty hilarious!
I also notified the P5s (thanks to RBenson for relaying the message!) and one guy sent me really good road shots. I’ve noted wherever possible the names of all the photographers, and hope they will be credited.
Anyway, I shan’t mention more. I don’t know how much of what I said will be reported, and I don’t know which photos the newspaper is choosing, so we shall just have to wait and be surprised on Monday! :)
