Capturing and Protecting the Beauty of Subic

In an effort to promote the Subic Bay’s beauty and its role as a common resource, as well as to enjoin the people in protecting and preserving it, the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA)organized the first ever Subic Bay Water Summit Photo Contest.

Opened to all amateur and professional photographers, the contest required entries that were taken at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone from Oct. 19 to Nov. 16, carrying the contest theme “Subic Bay: Our Common Resource, Our Common Responsibility.” Up for grabs were cash prizes for the first to third placers, and five consolation prizes of gift certificates. Certificates of Appreciation were also given to the participants.

Winners were awarded last Nov. 27 at the Subic Bay Exhibition and Convention Center at the Subic Bay Freeport, with Mr. Johann Ong bagging the first place, taking home the grand prize of Php15,000. Mr. Ong also won four of the five consolation prizes.
