Huawei collaborated with Manila Bulletin to mount a one-of-a kind photo exhibit that features the best works of Filipino mobile photographers and enthusiasts.
The NEXT-IMAGE photo exhibit is revolutionary in its concept since it features photo collections on how the Filipino express themselves creatively.
This year, Huawei has once again opened the Next Image Awards, a platform where Huawei users globally can show off their eye for capturing different subjects and moments. Huawei’s push for a mobile photo contest is no surprise, given that the brand is renowned for its smartphone camera such a the P20 Pro with its Leica lens camera.
As early as June this year, Huawei have already began collecting the work of local photography enthusiasts. All three competitions have now concluded, leaving us with numerous choice Next-Image pieces which were all displayed on the Next-Image Photo Exhibit at The Manila Hotel, Philippines.
This year, several countries and regions have been chosen to host their local competitions independent of the international contest, as well as other events more specifically catered to the characteristics of local users.
These events include three rounds of two-week competitions in the Philippines. In each of the three rounds that were held, judges selected the ten best works from numerous contributors, naming a single grand prize and nine mentions of excellence.
A total of 10,431 photo entries from 3,378 attendees came from the Philippines alone, making it the country with the highest submission of entries overseas. The reason why NEXT-IMAGE got so many entries from the Philippines is not only because Filipinos love taking photos but most importantly, Filipinos are creative people in nature.
During the event, Emma Cai, Huawei’s Senior Regional Marketing Director, opened the program by explaining the brand’s philosophy and why Huawei continuously partners with NEXT-IMAGE. While Art Samaniego who discussed the technology behind smartphone photography, while Mr. Jayme, discussed several tips on smartphone photography and highlighted how Huawei photography.
This partnership between Huawei and Manila Bulletin is giving everyone a chance to see the Filipino talent thru lens being recognized in local and international is a testament to Huawei’s commitment to making photography easier for everyone honing each individual’s talent through photography.
