The theme for the Canon Photography Contest is “Capture the spirit of the feast of Black Nazarene”

The organizers are not responsible for providing any photographic equipment, including cameras, spare batteries, lenses or additional memory cards. All participants are expected to come prepared with their own photographic equipment needs.

 All entries should be submitted on the Canon booth situated along HIDALGOMEZ Quiapo on January 10, 2012, between 10:00 AM - 4:00PM only. The organizers reserve the right to refuse the photo entry which will be submitted late.

An entry must not bear any name and free from any identifying marks of the photographer/owner on the image/picture area to avoid any hint of bias during judging.

While “nudity” is an art, entries must not, however, show sexual or reproductive organ of the subject, human or animal. Any image that shows sexual act or even suggests an indecent act or pose, offensive to moral standards, is not eligible and therefore disqualified as an entry.

All digital photographs submitted must have been shot on the duration of the celebration of the Feast of Black Nazarene 2012. Those submitting images shot earlier or photos taken by proxies will be disqualified.

Every category must have at least a minimum of ten (10) entries in order to be declared a valid contest.

Should a contest category have less than ten (10) entries, such category shall be declared “NO CONTEST” and all prizes allocated shall revert to the contest organizers.
