Magandang Araw Sa Iyo!
We understand your desire to make that spectacular shot that will win you the award. However, due to the new Alert Level Restrictions in January, you never had time. We’ve decided to extend the deadline until February 28!
Get ready, go to any branch of the University of the Philippines, and start shooting! We want to see how you capture the captivating busyness of the PGH hospital scene, the fog that covers the oblation in UP Baguio, the wonderful flora and fauna of UPLB’s natural wonders, the sunset at the UP Sunken Garden, or the drone shot of the beautiful UP Cebu campus!
You’ve got what it takes to win Best Photographer at the UP Photo Awards and take home Php 100,000! GO!
The People Category. This category shall be for people inside UP campuses. They may be images of the university’s employees, faculty, staff, utility workers, or just about anybody else inside the borders of the campuses.
The Architecture Category. This category is open for images of the university’s structures. They may be images of building edifices, complexes, and mostly empty hallways, lecture halls, and classrooms. We anticipate creative approaches in terms of rhythm and repetitions, patterns and shapes, as well as color and texture combinations.
The Nature Category. This category will feature images of the ecosystem of fauna and flora, and animals such as migratory birds, insects, and organisms that may be found inside UP campuses.
The News Category. The News Category is expected to be the most “action-packed” category, showcasing how UP dealt with Covid-19 beginning with long-term lockdowns. In this category, we expect photographs of UP Philippine General Hospital, and of events such as community pantries within the campuses, and rallies, among similar photographs.
The Pre-Covid Category. This category is for images captured from January 1, 2019 up to March 14, 2020, the day before the Philippine government instituted the first lockdown on March 15, 2020. This category is open for images that show the busy life on the campuses just before the lockdowns and quarantines.
