A BISAYA story writing contest about Cebuano folklores is now open to individuals and schools based in Cebu.
The contest, called “Matod Pa Sa Lola Ni Noy Kulas,” is a joint project of Sun.Star [Cebu] Superbalita, Sun.Star Network Exchange (Sunnex), Smart Communications Inc. and the University of the Philippines in the Visayas Cebu College-Central Visayas Studies Center (UPVCC-CVSC).
The story should be written in simple Sugbuanong Binisaya in 900 words or 5,000 characters with space, should tell about a Cebuano folklore popular in a certain place in Cebu, should have a setting or locale that uses symbols indigenous to the place, and has not been published previously.
The contest has two categories: individual and school. Five entries will be selected from each category.
In the individual category, only a current resident of Cebu province can join. He is required to submit, along with his story entry, a certification of his residency by the barangay captain. (more)
