Write About the Philippines and Win Prizes!
The amazing land formations of Chocolate Hills, the spectacular subterranean river in Palawan, the magnificent man-made Banaue Rice Terraces, the picture-perfect Pinatubo crater, the unbelievable underwater life in Palawan, and the pristine white sand beaches in Boracay… If those aren’t enough reasons to write about the natural wonders of the Philippines, then what is?
OfficiallyPhilippines.com, a travel website that aims to raise awareness of the Philippines one island at a time, invites you to write about anything under the Philippines’ tropical sun. Choose from the three categories – personal travel journal, documentary, or other topics such as Filipino fiestas and celebrations, local food, the hidden treasures in the country, and Filipino traditions (kaugaliang Pinoy). In 500 to 800 words, paint a picture of the beauty of the country by sharing your travel tales and more, and at the same time, be able to promote nationalism and also national fervor. Who knows? Your piece might just inspire someone to come to the Philippines for a visit.
By being an ambassador of Philippine tourism through the website’s writing contest, you will have the chance to win a combined total of Php 45,000 in cash and prizes. You can even submit more than one entry to improve your chances of winning. Deadline for submission of entries is on August 15, 2010. Check out www.OfficiallyPhilippines.com for more information about the contest, and to read about the best travel spots in the country with its all-original content from local travelers and writers. Spread the word and help create more awareness for travel to and within the Philippines.
