DMCI Homes’ annual photo contest, Capture, is back and bidding all DMCI Homes homeowners and residents to seize their precious moments while living in a resort-inspired community.
On its third run, Capture challenges all photography enthusiasts with 2 new categories.
In Best of Both Worlds, a participants’ eye for architecture and landscape design will be tested as the category seeks photos that best display “resort-style living amid the city living.”
The other category, #YOLO—a term inspired by the famous youth’s mantra “you only live once”—dares participants to capture photos that show how they “seize the day” or make the most out of their days living in a resort-inspired community.
The photos will be judged based on creativity, the photographic quality, feel-good message, and audience appeal and impact of the entry.
Capture, which will run from August 14 to November 15, 2015, will award monthly winners for each category with a voucher that will waive P5,000 worth of association dues.
The contest will culminate with a Grand Finals round where 10 (ten) entries will be chosen to vie for the P15,000 grand prize. A Facebook Choice Award also awaits the photo that obtains the highest number of Likes on the DMCI Homes official Facebook page
