Our contest aims to provide local writers and translators with both a platform for their works of Short Fiction and Poetry in Filipino, Ilocano, Bisaya, Ilonggo, and in English, and a competitive environment in which their word-smithing skills may be put to the test, with the best work receiving the top honors.
