The city government has launched a vlogging competition for vlogging professionals and enthusiasts to showcase the best of Zamboanga City.

The #ILoveZamboangaCity Vlog Competition, launched as part of the upcoming Summer na Zamboanga 2019, will have the theme “Ten Things I Love about Zamboanga” to convey messages of positivity and showcase the city’s tourism, food, and culture.

A vlog, or a video blog, a form of content for which the primary medium is a video and is a form of web television. Vlogs contain videos, images, and texts, and cover a wide range of topics and interests, and are usually uploaded on vide-sharing platforms for sharing and engagement with audience.

The #ILoveZamboangaCity vlog competition is open to all Zamboanga-based vloggers and enthusiasts. To join, a fully accomplished entry form must be submitted at the City Hall on or before April 30, with the interested vlogger taking part of the orientation meeting on the same day.

The video entry must be submitted via email (zambocitygovt@gmail.com) in .mp4 format and following the technical guidelines (available for download at the Zamboanga Hermosa FB page) on running time, size, and resolution, on or before May 17.

Only the first 10 submissions with the complete requirements will be accepted and included in the competition. Vloggers may only submit one entry, and all submissions must be original works/creation and use royalty-free music only.

Vlog entries can be in any language including Zamboanga Chavacano, but English subtitles must be provided.

Entries will be judged on the following criteria – artistic vision, creativity, editing, cinematography, and online reach.

Prizes for the competition will be Php 10,000, Php 7,000, and Php 5,000 for the top three spots. Consolation prizes of Php 3,000 will also be given. (Jasmine Mohammadsali)
