Bike fanatics and photographers unite! We are joining the festivities of the 2016 Malolos City Bike Festival on February 13 and 14 (Saturday and Sunday). Focus members and applicants - and anyone else who would like to shoot with us - are welcome and permitted to witness with their cameras both days of the event. However, the first day (February 13th) will be the designated PhotoMeet day. But hey, if you'd like to shoot both days, that would be awesome!
Please see the sked below for your reference. The Focus contingent will be gathering on February 13, 12:30PM for a group photo before the BMX, Scooter, and Skateboard Competition at 1PM. You are free to shoot the rest of the day (or the next day). As standard in our PhotoMeets, a contest will be held after. So bring your skills to the bike fest!
Please bring sun protection. Also check our Facebook page for updates. See you at the Bike Fest! :)
UPDATE : PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST
Attention, Focus members and applicants. For this PhotoMeet, we will be having our regular (monthly) contest, where you submit your best photo and Focus photographers and a guest judge will vote. However, in addition to our contest, the City of Malolos has offered to sponsor another contest for Focus shooters. Please keep in mind that this is separate from the Focus contest. Please read the details below.
You may submit an entry to each of the following category / event of the Malolos City Bike Festival 2016 :
Each category has its own slot in the Festival schedule (check above for the sked). The events are spread out in two days. Please plan your shooting schedule and determine which event you are going to photograph. You may join (submit an entry) in all the categories - if you could shoot each one of them. Please take note that only IN ACTION photos are going to be accepted as entries. Do NOT submit photos of the bikes in display.
A panel of judges will select the winner in each category, which shall include a sports photographer, a sports website editor, and the Malolos City mayor himself, Christian Natividad. They will also select - from the pool of category winners - the "Mayor's Choice", as the best bike photo of them all.
Each category winner will be awarded a Fiesta Republica trophy. The awarding ceremony will be held at the Malolos City Hall, with Mayor Natividad himself handing the trophies. The Mayor's Choice photo will also be published in the website SPIN.PH as cover photo in the Malolos City Bike Festival story.
All photo entries will be considered for exhibit at next year's edition (2017) of the Bike Festival.
But wait, there's more.
Focus shooters who will sign up (to shoot) by Wednesday, February 10, will be provided a Photographer's ID along with packed lunch during the Bike Festival. We will forward the sign up list to the organizers by Thursday (February 11). So if you are planning to shoot, sign up.
Special thanks to Sir Toti Villanueva of the City Sports and Development Office of Malolos for the tremendous support to this project.
We'll see you there, Focus folks! :)
