Samahan Ng Mga Litratistang Pinoy (SLP) Manila Inc., a SEC registered photography club headed by Edwin Pranada, had a on the spot photo contest last May 13 2012 held in the Quiapo Area in Manila. Since it was Mother’s Day, the theme was “Mother’s Day”! Around 30 photographers joined the contest.
The photographers were given 2 hours to shoot for the competition around the colorful busy district of Quiapo. The submission and judging was held at Mang Inasal at Evangelista St. Entries submitted were given to the lab for printing.
Mr. Dante del Mundo and Ms. Claudine Callanta, seasoned professional photographers, of the Rizal Digital Photographer Association, were the judges of the competition.
One of the highlights of the competition was the live judging and critique. The judges selected the pictures that did not make the cut. They called the photographers who owned the photo, explained why the photo does not work and gave them advise as well on how to improve the composition!
Here are the winning photos:
|1st Prize – Bernard Laca|
|2nd Prize – Herman Lumanog|
|3rd Prize -Brayan Banzuela|
|4th Prize – Bernard Laca|
Here are the photos and videos of the live judging, behind the scenes and the awarding:
