The Motorcycle Development Program Participants Association (MDPPA) composed of the leading local motorcycle manufacturers (Honda. Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha) invites all riders to join their latest Photography Contest. The new contest has the theme: “Let’s explore and enjoy our wonderful world! My Motorcycle. My World!”
The contest was organized to promote motorcycle tourism (motourism) as the activity is gaining popularity all throughout the Southeast Asian region.
The Philippines has many destinations perfect for exploring by motorcycle with its many pristine landscapes, beautiful and serene coasts, jungles bursting with life and natural splendor. As we take pleasure in riding and discovering these locales, MDPPA hopes we can communicate the message of safety and encourage everyone to have this outlook everywhere, anytime.
It is with this idea that the MDPPA has started the contest. The top photo has a chance to win up to PhP25,000. The winning photo will also serve as MDPPA’s entry in the Federation of Asian Motorcycle Industries (FAMI) Photography Contest in Bali, Indonesia in September 2019 for a chance to win up to SG$4.000.
Here are some of the mechanics:
The contest is open to all Filipino photo and moto enthusiasts 18-years old and above. Each contestant can submit up to two photo entries. Each entry must be original material not awarded in any other photo contest nor commercially published in advertisements or media.
Entries must promote motorcycle safety, Philippine tourism, and express the enjoyment of safe motorcycle riding.
Photos must be submitted through the official online website accompanied by a caption of not more than 100 words explaining the photograph’s relevance to the theme. Photo must be in JPEG, TIFF, or PNG format not exceeding 10 MB with a least 300 dpi. Entries with violent themes or obscenity will be disqualified. Employees of MDPPA member companies and their relatives up to the second degree are disqualified.
Photos will be judged by the following criteria: 30% content / relevance to the theme; 20% artistic value and communication potential; 20% technical excellence and quality; 30% overall impression
A total of six winners will be awarded. There will be 3 consolation prizes of PhP 5,000 each, PhP10,000 third place, PhP15,000 second place, and PhP25,000 first prize.
Entries will be judged by the MDPPA's board of judges.
