EU in PH awards winners of photo contest
The European Union Delegation to the Philippines has awarded the winners of its “IC EUropa in U” photography contest, one of the events celebrating the delegation’s 25th year in the country.
EU Delegation to the Philippines First Secretary Jérôme Rivière presented the awards to Froi Rivera, Gold Awardee for his photo “Love for Football”; Reu Dawner Flores, Silver Awardee for “Wind Power”; and Carlo Zamora, Bronze Awardee for “Lilok.”
Rivera, Flores, and Zamora received gadgets and tokens as prizes. In addition, Rivera received an online mentorship from The Philippine Centre for Photojournalism, Inc.
On the other hand, Nicko Rodriguez’s “A Woman of Great Nations” was chosen by netizens as their favorite.
Rivière said that the photo competition was held “to pay tribute to the works of photographers and photo hobbyists who are able to capture realities as they happen in our everyday lives.”
The “IC EUropa in U” contest also provided a glimpse as to how Filipinos perceive the influence of Europe in the country—resulting in an interesting mix of entries which touched on faith, religion, business, traditions and culture.
Selected entries were featured in a photo exhibit at the De La Salle University. The exhibit will then be taken to the RCBC Plaza where the Office of the EU Delegation to the Philippines is located and then to Shangri-La Plaza for the Cine Europa.
The contest was conducted in partnership with The Photojournalists Center of the Philippines, Inc., European Studies Association and Team Communication from De La Salle University, the LPU-Project for Asian and International Relations of the Lyceum of the Philippines University Manila, Euro-Filipino Understanding and Relations Organization of the University of the Philippines, the Association of European Studies Students of Ateneo De Manila University and Philstar.com.
