The Philippine Navy (PN), in cooperation with the Cultural Center of the Philippines, recently launched its first-ever Independent Film Competition in commemoration of its 113th anniversary.
Open to all Filipino filmmakers, the competition highlights this year’s PN anniversary theme: Philippine Navy: A Vital Partner for Peace, Security, and Development of our Maritime Nation. It is considered a new concept in the list of Philippine Navy community relations activities following the previous annual essay-writing contest participated in by PN personnel and their dependents. With the thought of enhancing PN efforts to harness the spirit of competition among Navy affairs enthusiasts, the competition hopes to feature the Philippine Navy as a partner in nation building, and at the same time increase the awareness of the Navy to all stakeholders interested in upholding peace, security and development.
The competition is also open to writers, both professional and amateurs, from schools and other independent organizations. The first, second and third prizes are P40,000, P25,000 and P15,000, respectively.
