Earlier this year, the Presentation of the Child Jesus (PCJ) Parish launched the 2016 edition of its photography contest. With the theme “Captured Moments of the 2016 Parish Fiesta Activities”, the objective of the contest was to create an opportunity to capture moments of unity, togetherness, and fun as PCJ celebrated this year’s fiesta.

The contest was open to all PCJ parishioners who are amateur photographers at least 18 years of age. The PCJ Admin staff, head servants, contest judges, and those involved in setting up the contest were not allowed to join. Contestants were allowed to submit their entries between January 9 up to February 21.


Winners will be determined by the following criteria:

  1. 50% – Audience votes. These will be taken from Facebook likes and email votes. Voting began on February 26 and will continue until March 15.
  2. 50% – PCJ Panel of Judges. 20% of this is originality of the photo, another 20% for image expression, and the remaining 10% for the relevance of the title and caption.

The announcement of winners will be on March 27, Easter Sunday.
