Emman Foronda (@emmanforonda) and Jet Velas (@jetvelas) each won a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and a Gear VR for submitting the best entry for the Professional and the Open Category, respectively. Their winning photos are to be featured on Culture Explorer, a mobile application that uses augmented reality technology to help people, especially the youth, learn about historical landmarks in the Philippines.
All runner-ups of the two categories each got to take home a Samsung Galaxy A5 2016.
The awarding took place at the Yuchengco Museum, during the opening of the exhibition Eduardo Castrillo @ 50: Moving the Legacy Forward, which pays homage to the nationalist sculptor’s contributions to the art industry. The display may be viewed until 24 November 2016.
