IMG_0387The Citizens’ Disaster Response Center (CDRC) has formally announced the winners of  the annual nationwide poster-making contest entitled “APOY, BAGYO, KALAMIDAD: DIBUHONG PAMBATA (ABKD) 2014” during the organization’s 30th foundation anniversary last October 6, 2014.

This year’s grand prize winners are Ashley Winslet C. Sy and Jean Andrei T. Nubla for Category A and Key C. Jaboneta and Janice Ashley B. De Jesus for Category B.

The four major winners and eight runners-up received cash prizes, certificates and t-shirts with images of their winning entries printed on them.

The nationwide competition recognizes the capacities of children to take active part in the advocacy of issues related to disasters. Now on its 20th year, ABKD continues to serve as a venue for children’s artistic and creative expression of their views and concerns on disasters.

The panel of judges was composed of artists who are also advocates of children’s welfare, environmental protection and community-based disaster management. They are Emil Yap, Lorena Pacampara, Sarah Espineda, Andrew Alejo and Taku Shinjo.

This year’s contest was sponsored by Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe. The winning artworks will be featured in CDRC’s 2015 disaster preparedness calendar and other advocacy materials.
