Camiguin taps Tik­Tok, vlog­ging in vir­tual Lan­zones Fes­ti­val


CA­GAYAN DE ORO CITY (PNA) – The prov­ince of Camiguin will be us­ing on­line plat­forms, such as Tik­Tok and video we­blog­ging (vlog­ging), to mark the cel­e­bra­tion of its 41st Lan­zones Fes­ti­val that aims to pro­mote lo­cal tourism.

In an in­ter­view Fri­day, Gov­er­nor Jur­din Je­sus Ro­mualdo said the pub­lic is in­vited to par­tic­i­pate in the fes­ti­val’s on­line launch on Oc­to­ber 18.

Among the four-day fes­ti­val’s ma­jor on­line ac­tiv­i­ties is the Han­durawan On­line Photo Con­test, which is open to both am­a­teur hob­by­ists and pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­phers.

“These ac­tiv­i­ties are lined up start­ing Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 18, then these (will) con­tinue ev­ery day. We have the me­chan­ics that can be viewed on face­ lan­zones­fes­ti­val,” Ro­mualdo said.

Tik­Tok­ers may also show their tal­ents through the Buwa­han Tik­Tok Chal­lenge, which has the solo, duo, and fam­ily cat­e­gories.

Chal­lengers must cre­ate con­tent that is aligned with the theme “Cel­e­brat­ing Lan­zones Fes­ti­val at Home”.

Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three win­ners of each cat­e­gory.

De­sign­ers and in­di­vid­u­als with a keen eye for the arts can also join the “Aggama Ki Ta Pak­soy” De­sign Com­pe­ti­tion.

In­ter­ested par­tic­i­pants may sub­mit their ap­parel cre­ation, which can be used in a ca­sual lunch or din­ner in a cor­po­rate or busi­ness set­ting, to lan­zones­fes­ti­val@

The provin­cial gov­ern­ment also urged stu­dents to join the Dig­i­tal Cover Poster De­sign Con­test, an­chored on the theme “Camiguin: Em­brac­ing the New Nor­mal”.

The art­work may be a dig­i­tal il­lus­tra­tion/paint­ing, a sin­gle photo, a photo col­lage, or mixed, so long as it is orig­i­nal.

For mod­ern video en­thu­si­asts, the Camiguin Vlog­ging Con­test is also open to all res­i­dents of the prov­ince, whether cur­rently re­sid­ing in the is­land-prov­ince or not.

One video en­try is al­lowed per con­tent cre­ator and must fo­cus on the theme “Camiguin: Dis­cover More”.

Towns in the prov­ince have also been urged to join the “Ag Adorno Ki”, a mu­nic­i­pal hall dress-up con­test.

With the theme “New Nor­mal. New Mo­ments. New Mem­o­ries”, the con­test aims to high­light the lan­zones fruit, lo­cal pro­duce, or le­gends of Camiguin’s towns.

Ro­mualdo said the prov­ince’s prod­ucts, crafts, and del­i­ca­cies could be availed of dur­ing the fes­tiv­ity through the site Ug­mad On­line 2020.

Camigu­inons could also view the culi­nary her­itage of the prov­ince on­line through the Camiguin Food­scapes, which will be streamed on the Lan­zones Fes­ti­val Face­book Page.
