Reignite: A Photo Competition

Photo Credit: ShutterspeedPH

As we are flooded by negativity the news brings each day and the waiting game continues, positivity seems scarce these days in the only place we can meet and gather as a group: online. We can’t turn things around but we can certainly grasp at whatever hope we can find.

As our way of contributing to the hope that this nation needs right now, we are launching a photo contest you can join in from the safety of your homes.

You won’t need to go out to take the photos you’ll be entering. As a matter of fact, we advise against it as we strongly support the government’s efforts in fighting this unseen enemy. We only need you to look back to your most cherished memories and grab a photo that encompasses the hope you cling to ’til this is all over. What are the passions you want to pursue again? What are the places you long to see again? What are the things you have taken for granted but now miss doing? Tell us about it and get a chance to win a ₱10,000 shopping spree at Urban Gadgets!
