  • What worked well?

The popularity of the contest was given but the promotion and outreach activities created greater impact. Connecting with the Department of Tourism/LGU's and the willingness of a recognized group of photographers to conduct photo walk were a good start of partnership. Overall, as an organizer I am inspired to do better.

  • What would you do differently next time?

I will focus more on the editing activities on how to improve articles using the images in the competition.
