Suroy Pilipinas Blogger Wins 1st Place in Malaybalay City Charter Day Photo Contest!


This blogger bagged 1st Place in Landscape Category of the recently held Malaybalay City Charter Day Photo Contest.  My winning entry, posted above, was taken at the peak of Mount Capistrano last Holy Week of 2014. I was not expecting to win the top prize as this photo was only taken using an old Canon Powershot A1100 IS point-and-shoot. I have to make do with my digicam's capabilities and thankfully this one made it as the top choice of the judges.

The objective of the contest was to showcase existing and potential tourist spots in Malaybalay City, Bukidnon. I actually submitted four photos and three made it to the final cut. My other two entries, were also taken with compact digicams and both won consolation prizes.

This is my second time to win in a photo contest, as last year I also won 1st place in the Sarangani Bay Festival Online Photo Contest.
