MANILA, Philippines – PhilPlans recently awarded the top three winners of its Aking Panata Photo Contest at the new PhilPlans Corporate Headquarters at the 12/F iACADEMY Building, 6764 Ayala Avenue, Makati City.

PhilPlans assistant vice president for marketing Giuseppe E. Morta awarded the major prizes to: Eduardo Esplana (on behalf of Mr. Cirilo Esplana), 1st prize; Ed Elizarde, 2nd prize; and Eric Bautista (on behalf of Mr. Gerard Bautista), 3rd prize.  The photo enthusiasts received a 32-inch Sony LCD TV, Nintendo Wii, and Canon Powershot camera, respectively.

“We are very happy to award the winners for the Aking Panata Photo Contest.  This contest aimed to emphasize the importance of fulfilling one’s commitment to others and we believe that we Filipinos have the strength of character to stay true to our word and commit to others.  This is the same commitment that we have for our planholders through the years, in fact we have paid over P2.3 billion in pension, education, and memorial plan benefits for the year 2011.” said Morta.

The Ang Aking Panata Photo Contest highlighted photos that showed commitment to family, friends, work, values, and relationships.

Esplana gathered the most number of Facebook likes among all photo entries with his simple entry featuring Gohan, his cute baby boy.  The photo was aptly captioned with, “How can you not give everything to a baby you brought into the world beaming with hope and dreams? My baby, I pledge to you my life for your bright tomorrow.”
