Yesterday, the Organizing Committee of Gensan’s Tuna Festival eXperience 2009 announced the results of the Photo Competition. Over one hundred (100) entries were submitted for consideration under four categories namely: (1) Festival Highlights & Sidelights; (2) Miss Gensan; (3) Fish Fest Sa Fish Port and (4) Float Parade of Lights. Photographers from as far as Manila, Cebu and Davao participated and judging from the quality of this year’s photos, this competition is expected to produce world-class quality shots depicting Gensan’s charm as a city.
These two pictures were taken by Gensan resident Leonard Pe. LEAP OF FAITH was from the Skimboarding Competition held at the Queen Tuna Park last August 29. AND THEN THERE WAS LIGHT was actually taken during the Splash in the Sky Fireworks Display last September 5 at the Oval Plaza Grounds.
PYRAMID OF JOY was taken by another Gensan resident Mosler Lapore during the Pasiklaban Cheer Dance Competition held at the Lagao Gym last September 1. The NDDU Sarimanok Pep Squad once again took home the crown this year.
Gensan’s Camera Club (GCC) outgoing president Dong Pading took this shot and aptly named it MAKA-APAS ANG POBRE. This was a common scene at the Oval Plaza grounds during the Festival week. Dong is also from Gensan.
Another winning shot from Dong Pading was taken from BANCARERA 2009 which was organized by Bombo Radyo Philippines last September 5 held at the Queen Tuna Park. ON YOUR MARK…GET SET…GO! captured a winning moment that eventful Saturday morning.
Polomolok resident James Montano delivered two winning shots this year. Sssssh…. shows the lighter side of the highly competitive Mardi Gras Street Dancing Contest held last September 5 at the Pioneer Avenue. As the dancers were waiting (and chatting) for the cue to be called, two Air Force soldiers were hushing them…
Taken by James Montano during the final round of competition of the Body Fest Modeling Contest last September 3 at the Gaisano Mall Atrium. Finalists Lea and Ariel STRIKE A POSE for the judges. Ariel eventually won as Male Champion while Lea won as Female Photographic Model.
I’m sure glad that Ronald Velasquez is getting his groove back. PLAYING WITH FIRE marks his return to his top form. His shot captured the intensity of the Fire Knife dance as performed by Andrew Dino.
