Last October 18, the Canon Photomarathon University leg was held in De La Salle University. Winners are inviting beginners and professionals alike to join the National leg on November 8. Agatha Meg Albano, the grand prize winner for the Point-and-Shoot category, has this one important advice, “Participants have to be flexible. I think you have to understand the theme for you to be able to capture all the elements required by a winning shot.” Raymond Paredes, grand prize winner from the Digital Cameras with Interchangeable Lenses Category, invites people with immense potential to join. “I would invite those who have the potential to win, or have the hard work and skills, I guarantee it will pay off!”
