I am Php 10k Richer today!

Posted by Ferdie Flores, Philippine Photographer

I am so excited to share with you that I got very, very lucky to win a Photo Contest entitled “Manila – An Urban Decay”

The contest was sponsored by the “We are the Reason movement“.  (click the link to read more about it)

Here’s the fun part.  I was a bit hesitant to join such contest as I am not really the competitive type.  We did the shoot on a very, very steaming hot Sunday… about more a month ago… together with my SPPP (Society of Portait Photographers) buddies, we visited the sites of Tondo and the Streets of Binondo. I was not just in it for the fun… thanks to my friends.

And then, comes the submission of the photos, telling almost everyone “Hindi naman magaganda eh“… but then Jeng (my wife) finally convinced me to just submit “Malay mo!“… and so, I submitted 4 entries… “Akalain mong, 2 out of the 4 entries I submitted got to the top 12!  Whoah!  Here’s the top 12. My entries that made it were 4 & 10. To tell you honestly… it was pure luck! 🙂

winners are the following:

1st place: Andy Samaniego (Bagging 25k Big ones!)

2nd place: Alex Ares (taking home 15k)

3rd place: Ferdie Flores (yours truly is 10k richer today)

Special thanks to Miss Leah Taas for the contest invitation, for the We are the Reason Organization for the sponsorship and of course to SPPP and my fellow members for the fun! 🙂  Glad to have joined the club! 🙂
