Join the Bright Child Photo contest
Davao City (15 September) -- In this community, no matter how good and pleasant things might be in the outside, it can not hide the fact that inside we are struggling to free ourselves from the bondage of uncertainty. We are still living in violence, poverty, graft and corruption, and all the worst things that the world can offer.
The children, no matter how young they are, no age can bar them from being a carefree soul. They do not lie. The eyes, community and children have commonality. TRUTH.
Combining the three to come up with a cause is a task definitely a photo contest will suffice. With this year's theme: "Bright Child: Karapatan nasa 'yo, Isigaw sa buong Mundo!" photographers – professionals and non-professionals are encouraged to join the photo contest. With their cameras as their eyes, they will capture community scenes that will best captivate the children's month theme.
