The picture above, taken by Dong Pading best represents the superb entries under the PAGEANTS CATEGORY.
Caroline Lim, 2010 Lakambini in her Festival Costume. The colorful combination of her costume and her winning smile caught our eye.
Mutya ng Tampakan and 1st runner up of the Queen of Mindanao Festivals strikes a pose while performing with her coterie of dancers dutifully captured by Dondon Pagunsan.
Lakan 2010 Gevic Romero in his Festival Costume. What we liked about Omar’s shot is the no-nonsense manner of delivering a story thru pictures.
I love crowd shots. Jing Velos captured one of the best perspective of the Lakan at Lakambini Pageant.
It must be the beads! This photo by Caezar Sausa is a good conversation piece.
The first-ever Queen of Mindanao Festivals, Madonna Galang had to take over as Gensan’s bet in lieu of Miss Gensan Astrid Hernandez who was busy with her nursing studies. In this photo, Dong Pading once again proved that he has an eye for beauty (or beautiful ladies).
Mutya ng Tampakan almost won the crown because of her witty remarks and young lady’s charm. Jonathan Lara’s shot was a judges’ favorite.
