This year's Araw ng Davao is just around the corner. To be exact is it going to be celebrated from March 16 all the way up to March 23, 2015. This is just one of the local celebrations here in Davao City every year, and every event that is observed here is always with competitions or contests. One of those famous competitions is the Hulagway Series, hulagway means photo.
Last Christmas there was a Hulagway sa Pasko and this year the city government of Davao is also bringing the said contest, as it has always been doing since a couple of years back, to the 2015 celebration of Araw ng Davao with the theme "LIFE IN MY CITY". The theme encourages professional photographers and hobbyists to showcase "what they love about living in Davao City".
Under the theme there are four categories which an individual can choose from up to two categories and submit up to two photo entries or one for each category. These categories are People, Events, Places and Local Icons. Photo entrees would be accepted as long those were captured between January 1 and March 16, 2015. Deadline for submission is on March 18 at 5:00 PM.
Top winner is awaited by a Php15,000 cash prize, second will get Php10,000 and Php5,000 for the third placer. Consolation prizes will also be given away, the next 17 finalists will get Php1,500 each. On top of those mentioned above, a Mayor Choice's Award is also part of the prize pool where the winner will be chosen from the 20 finalists, that's an additional Php3,000 prize.
