  • Filipinos bag top honors at APEC 2016 Photo Contest
  • The 2016 APEC Photo Contest winners were announced last Tuesday, November 15, and a pair of Filipino photographers brought home top honors.


    GOING GLOBAL. Danilo Victoriano’s interpretation of APEC’s long body of work: a basket-weaving handicraft factory in Cainta, Rizal.

    Filipino lensman Danilo O. Victoriano’s “Going Global” won first prize at the 6th APEC Photo Contest, bringing home a SGD 2,000 prize, or almost P70,000. Second prize went to Trong Huu Hung of Vietnam for “Exposure Snapper”, while Dhiky Aditya from Indonesia won third for his photo entitled “Drying Clothes”.


    HARVEST TIME. Fishermen reel in the catch of the day.

    Victoriano’s photo was heads above the field of 600 entries, which included fellow Filipino photographer Jerry Lee’s “Harvest Time”, which captured the precise moment when fishermen reeled in their net.

    On its sixth year, the contest sought the public’s interpretation of APEC’s work that helps bring more opportunities for growth by way of increased participation in global value chains, more secure food sources and an empowered regional workforce.
