Glenn Palacio, a proudly Kagay-anon photographer made it to the shortlist of final participants in a national photography contest organized by Digital Photographer Philippines. His photo essay entitled “People of the Sand” features some people whose source of income is quarrying at Cagayan de Oro River. It is the only entry from Mindanao that made it to the final cut.
The winner of this contest will go to Barcelona, Spain and will be shooting for Digital Photographer Philippines. The photos will also be featured in the in-flight magazine of KLM Royal Dutch Airline.
