We’re proud to announce the winners of the Kalilangan Festival 2010 Photo Contest. Out of the more than 250 entries, the judges chose twenty-five consolation winners and the three best pictures in the competition. We had difficulty in selecting the winning photos since there were just too many of them. Entries for the Street Dancing Category overshoot our expectations – it reached almost 150 pictures. This was where most of the selections came from. We noticed that the other categories had lackluster entries thus adjustments had to be made as far as the number of winners per category.
This picture by Dino Kintanar was a unanimous choice by the judges. It encompassed everything that Kalilangan Festival is all about: Fun, vibrant, colorful and dynamic.
Seemingly subdued but this photo captured the rich cultural heritage of Gensan. Paul Fernandez Llanos almost did not make it to this event. Good thing he did — his shot tells an important story.
Not your typical street dancing photo which the judges noticed immediately. The original Master of Photography captured the fading light from the sky and with the available light it painted a beautiful rendition of the dance.
