59th Palanca Awards Now Accepting Entries
On its 59th year, the Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature (Palanca Awards), the country's most prestigious and longest-running literary contest, officially opens on March 1, 2009.
What's new in 2009? The Palanca Awards announces the introduction of two new categories:
In these new categories, envisioned to encourage the development of a body of poetry for young children, an entry must consist of a collection of at least 10 but not more than 15 poems. It may deal with any subject and must be comprehensible within the grade-school reading level of children ages 6-12, but accessible in its oral form by younger children.
The complete regular categories under which participants can submit their entries are:
English Division: Short Story, Short Story for Children, Essay, Poetry, Poetry Written for Children, One-act Play, Full-length Play.
Filipino Division: Maikling Kuwento, Maikling Kuwentong Pambata, Sanaysay, Tula, Tulang Isinulat Para sa mga Bata, Dulang May Isang Yugto, Dulang Ganap ang Haba, and Dulang Pampelikula.
Regional Languages Division: Short Story-Cebuano, Short Story-Hiligaynon and Short Story-Iluko.
Each contestant may submit only one entry per category.
Meanwhile, in the Kabataan Division, Palanca Awards' special division for young writers below 18 years old, the Kabataan Essay theme in the English category is "How can the Filipino youth help build a globally competitive nation?" and in the Filipino category 'Paano makatutulong ang kabataang Filipino sa pagtataguyod ng isang maunlad na bansa na maihahanay sa mga nangungunang bayan sa buong mundo?"
The literary contest is open to all Filipino (or former Filipino) citizens, except current officers and employees of its organizing body, the Carlos Palanca Foundation, Inc.
