Our version of the Christmas exchange gift tradition : picking a random partner and shooting each other's portraits. FPP 2017 is now the 5th edition, with this year's theme "black and white".
Here are the FPP 2017 entries :
The photos were presented during Focus Bulacan's year-end party and on-the-spot voting ensued. After the two-hour polling period, the Top 5 were determined :
5th Place : Angelo Yamanaka as photographed by ELENA TAEZA
4th Place : Humprey Catajan as photographed by JER SANDEL
3rd Place : Julius Calzo as photographed by JEFFREY TINAGAN
2nd Place : Francesca Bengco as photographed by ALIH VIAJE
1st Place : Pauline Villafuerte as photographed by GERALD GLOTON
Congratulations, Gerald and Pauline! Gerald was not present for the awarding so in his behalf to accept the prizes was Pauline. Gerald gets a selfie drone and Pauline gets a Huawei gift set.
FPP participants get 7 points for submitting entries for the Photographer of the Year competition. First place gets additional 15 points as bonus, 2nd place gets 10 points, 3rd place gets 7, 4th place gets 5, and 5th place gets 3 bonus points.
Competition is fun
At Focus Bulacan, we strive to improve every member's photography skills. One way to do this is to constantly challenge each other with photo contests. All competition is posted here, for voting and for announcement of results. Good luck!
