Shutterbugs join contest

CLOSE to 1,300 photojournalists and photography enthusiasts will be joining this year’s Sinulog Festival Photography Competition.

But due to an increasing number of competitors this year, registration for the photo contest has been stopped for now but will resume on Friday, said Ricky Ballesteros, executive director of the Sinulog Foundation Inc. (SFI).

“On Friday, we will resume registration but will only take 50 registrants,” added Ballesteros.

A total of 1,250 photographers will be joining this year.

In this year’s 30th Sinulog Festival, Ballesteros hopes the winning photo will capture the essence of the festival in one picture.

“We want a picture that can distinguish the Sinulog Festival above other similar festivals, such as the Ati-atihan Festival in Aklan,” said Ballesteros.

Ballesteros added that this year, SFI has cited that younger photographers, like Fine Arts and Mass Communication students, are joining the contest. (more)
