1. What is the purpose of redsports.sg?

We believe that school sports deserve more support from the community. For an understanding of our mission, check out our mission statement.

2. Can I write about my school’s match for the web site?

Yes, you can. Please send us a 100-word summary of what happened at your game and we’ll publish it.  Let us know your name so that we can credit you.

3. Can I submit pictures of my school’s match for the web site?

Yes, you can too. Please email us a picture no larger than 750 x 500 pixels (landscape) [email protected]. Let us know your name so that we can credit you too.  If you can team up with a friend who can write about the game (see question 2 above), then we will combine your picture and story together.

4. How come my sport and school aren’t covered?

There are a few reasons for that. We may not even have known about it.  So please email us a schedule. Also, we can’t be everywhere and cover all the games. If you think you can share with us what happened at your game, please email us too (see question 2 and 3).

5. Is redsports.sg restricted only to certain sports?

No it isn’t. We are happy to feature ALL sports. You send it, we’ll post it.

6. May I take pictures and articles from the web site?

If you are a student, please go ahead and take what you like for your own web site, blog or archive.  Send it to your friends and family.  Use it as your computer’s wallpaper. Just gives us a link on your blog if you do put the pictures and articles there.

If you are a school, business or government organization, please contact us regarding the terms of use and licensing fees for the use of the pictures.

Copyright of the pictures belong to Red Sports (unless otherwise stated).  This means that you cannot resell the pictures, post it on the website of a private company or print it out without permission and the payment of an agreed licensing fee.

if you want to have the higher resolution version, we reserve the right to sell it to you.  That is the standard practice of all the established news agencies in Singapore and globally. Please visit the RedSports Shop for more details.

7.  What’s the catch? How will you make money?

None. We do not solicit money from schools, students or parents.

This website is a community news service. We attend the game, shoot the pictures, write the report and publish the story.

No site can survive for long without funding and so we look for revenue from advertising and sponsorship. If you believe this website will help build Singapore’s sporting lifestyle and is worth supporting, please contact us for advertising and sponsorship issues. You can also purchase pictures, get a subscription or donate to us at the RedSports Shop.

8.  If we submit pictures to redsports.sg, who retains copyright?

If you submit pictures to us, you retain the copyright to your pictures and agree to let us use your story and pictures on a non-exclusive, non-royalty basis. See our full terms and conditions.

9. May I volunteer?

We are looking for volunteers who are interested in sports photography and reporting.

But we aren’t just looking for any kind of volunteers.

School sports is special. Entering a school premise to cover sports is a privilege, not an entitlement.  So we are looking for men and women with a gracious pen and an inspiring eye.

What we write and the pictures we take for Red Sports matters to our athletes.  So we build up, not tear down.  We encourage, not discourage. We inspire, not crush.

We don’t always succeed of course.  Some already disagree with too negative a headline.  But we learn and move on.

So if you’d like to volunteer please drop us a line.  Age is no barrier. Attitude is all that matters.

  1. Do you have any involvement with China? I read online that you have been set-up by Michael Owen and Mark Wright? Or am I confusing companies?

    • Les Tan

      Hi Andrew. Yes, you are confusing companies. But it’s understandable. REDSPORTS.SG is focused on Singapore only. Hope you manage to get in touch with Owen’s company. All the best.

      Regards
      Les

  2. Thank you so much for the prompt reply, i saw that your internship periods are only until August but my internship period is from september- december. Would that be of an issue?

  3. Hi Leslie,

    I would just like to enquire if RedSports offers any internship opportunities. Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you!

  4. Hi Leslie,

    I’m a teacher from RI and created a website for my basketball teams on my own. Could I use your photos for our website and credit/link your website on it?

      Hi Carlsen. Thanks for your message. As the copyright of the photos remain with the photographers, my agreement with them is that their photos are published on redsports.sg only. Sorry.

  5. Hi Les,

    Just wondering is Red Sports a non profit organization or Govt or Private? Just abit confuse, but hope to clear it up.

    Btw, Great work on the YOG coverage! Go Singapore!

    • Les Tan

      Hi Kelvin, I run this site out of my own pocket. Not funded by government, if that’s what you’re asking.

      Thanks for the compliment.

      The volunteer crew is doing a wonderful job.

  6. hi,
    im just asking if i will to volunteer to write for matches, does it mean that i have to provide my myself with the camera and stuffs like this?

  7. Where is the link to the photo gallery? I can’t find it.

    No particular sports because i feel all the photos were nicely taken. Would a little waste to throw it away 😉

  8. Hi.

    Do you have a photo gallery section? I believed there are a lot of pictures taken during the games and so i was wondering, what happen to the others pictures that are not published along with the article.

    Thanks!

  9. Hi James, I was just wondering why there wasn’t much photos and post for this year Netball Polite Championship as compare to last year.

    • @Polite 2009/2010: Sorry but who is James?

      There were no volunteers who wanted to cover netball. Most of the volunteers live in the west. Netball was held in the east. No volunteers live in the east, sadly.

      At Red Sports, all POL-ITE stories are done by volunteers.

      You send it, we post it.
