Competitions were held in photojournalism, writing (editorial, news, sports, feature and copyreading), editorial cartooning, and radio broadcasting.

The DepEd Region III is composed of 17 divisions from several provinces and cities, namely, Aurora, Bataan, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Tarlac, Zambales, Angeles City, Cabanatuan City, Olongapo City, Tarlac City, San Jose del Monte City, San Fernando City, Gapan City, Balanga City, Science City of Munoz, and Malolos City.

I was the resource speaker and judge for the photojournalism competition (high school category, with a total of 102 participants). Pictures below show the photojournalism contestants during the lecture, the actual photo shoot, waiting for the arrival of their printed pictures, and the layouting of their contest entries (plus scenes from the grade school competitions and RSPC activities). Congratulations to all the winners!

Listen muna tayo sa lecture kahit corny yung jokes ni Atty. Gerry!

Eto ang tinatawag na low angle shot ...

Hide and seek ata eto, hindi photojourn!

Kanya-kanyang style lang yan

Acrobatic photojournalism ang tawag dito

Pssst, ano ang sinisilip mo dyan?

Natural frame!

Uso ata talaga ang low angle shot ...

Break muna after the hectic photo shoot

Sir Gerry, tip naman para manalo yung pictures namin ...

Konting jitters while waiting for the pictures to arrive from Cabanatuan City pa ...

Kami, relaxed na relaxed!

Okay, layouting time na!

Hmm, di bale nang wag manalo, malagay lang ang picture ko sa Internet ...

Pa-kopya naman ng layout ninyo!
