Mantawi Festival Documentary Competition: The Draft

I had a meeting with Cheryl Ouano and Ted Madamba at the Mandaue City Hall regarding the Mantawi Festival Documentary Competition. They gave me the lowdown on what they want to happen with the competition and what the expected results should be.

Yes folks, I will be the Chairman for this competition and will be the over-all co-chair for Documentation of the said event. It's a rather big task since It'll be my first time to organize a competition this big.

Anyway, since I am tasked to create the guidelines for the competition, I shall post the draft on this blog:
