A "More Fun" DPC and PLDT 27th Directory Cover Contest

Calling all student who are photo enthusiasts! You are all are invited to join the 27th Visual Arts National Competition of Directories Philippines Corporation (DPC) and the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT).


With this year's medium: Digital Photography, qualified participants ages 15-24 and currently enrolled in any local school, have now a chance to win trophies, gift items for themselves and their schools, cash prizes and the prestige to have their winning photographs be featured in covers of PLDT phone directories and DPC Yellow Pages all over the Philippines.

For the second year in a row, this contest is using digital photography as the medium for entry, evolving from a quarter-century tradition of painting competitions. And this year, DPC and PLDT have tied up with the Department of Tourism (DOT) and adapted the competition’s theme, “More fun in the Philippines,” from the national tourism campaign.

2012 Winners

“More fun has been interpreted in many ways,” Ricardo D. Bautista, DPC president, said. “We want our young photography buffs to think of something different, original—something that projects the positive side of Filipinos in their local settings.”

Each student can submit up to three entries, in full color or black & white with an 8” x 12” portrait orientation with at least 10 megapixels resolution. All entries must be uploaded to the contest’s website, www.visualarts.ph starting November 28 until the last day for submission, February 22, 2013.

There will be four major national prizes consisting of cash, a trophy and a camera, courtesy of Canon, the official imaging and printing partner for the competition. In addition, their schools will each receive a high-end Canon PIXMA printer.
