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 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.
