Here's my photo description when I put my ratings..."Looks like not scripted. Its really an unguarded shot. My favorite in Photography. The subjects in this image really captured well by the photographer. The smile of both subjects conveys their true feelings, may either they are satisfied with what they're doing or satisfied with what they've eaten." - Bonzenti Panganiban ( Judge, I love South Cotabato Photo Contest 2013)

I was so glad when the author of South Cotabato News Dot Com, Nanardz Zee, invited me to judge a photo contest, entitled I Love South Cotabato Photo Contest 2013. I accepted that invitation without hesitation and took the challenge.

To become a judge is really a tough job, especially in a photo contest like this one. As a judge, all we need is to check every photo one by one and there were 30 photos forwarded to us as finalists. Amateur and Professional Photographers, and even newbies submitted their entries and around 120 entries were received by the contest host.

Becoming a judge is also like winning a photo contest. Why? It's because you are choosing the best photos among the best. But of course, we have to be careful in choosing and we have to use all the knowledge and what we learned in Photography workshop that we had and through some readings of various photography magazines online. Such as the important elements in a photo and a photo that tells us story like the one who bagged the first prize.

With this, as a personal note, I would like to thank South Cotabato New Dot Com Nanardxz Zee of this wonderful opportunity and in recognizing my humble talent in photography, though I am still an amateur in this field.
