Some months back, we announced a call for entries for the Motorcycle Development Program Participants Association's (MDPPA) photo contest, entitled “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. In line with this, the MDPPA wants to promote the Philippines and its destinations that are perfect for exploring by motorcycle.

Not only that, the top photo served as MDPPA and the country'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.

Just recently, the MDPPA has announced the winners of the photo contest. Taking the top prize was Aldrin Cuadra’s “Across Islands,” (pictured above) featuring a rider walking his bike across a bamboo bridge to a boat to cross islands in Palawan, Philippines. This photo also garnered second place at the FAMI photo contest in Bali.
