Jerry Treñas resorts to photo contest for Iloilo City Day


The pandemic ruined any grand plans for celebration, so Mayor Jerry Treñas is taking the party online.

The politiko is disheartened to let Iloilo City’s 83rd charter day pass without fanfare as parties and big events are not allowed due to COVID-19. His compromise is to take the celebration online by launching a virtual photo contest among residents.

He took his own creative shot during the Dinagyang festival as a sample.

“Your pictures are worth a thousand words, but the memories you made are forever priceless. Share your priceless photos about any of the following (1) Tourism and Destination (2) Culture, People and History (3) Customs and Tradition or (4) Food and local products and get a chance to win up to P10,000,” Treñas said.

Load up your post with the hashtags #IloiloCityat83 #IloiloCityGovernment and #UswagIloilo to boost your chances of winning. Good luck!
