Fine Arts student Alma Zosan Alcoran outdid her teacher, Hersley-Ven Casero, by winning first place in a photography contest sponsored by the Dumaguete City Tourism Office.

With the contest requiring photographers to capture slices of life in Dumaguete, Alcoran said she chose to submit a photo about Dumaguete’s being considered the Motorcycle Capital of the Philippines. “Most families in Dumaguete City, own at least one motorcycle, which is primarily used for their everyday trips. People prefer it because you don’t have to spend in gas as much as you do in filling up your car,” Alcoran said.

By owning motorcycles, Dumaguetenos also offer job opportunities to some who are willing to help them park their motorcycles and make sure that the motorcycle taken good care of while the owners spend their time shopping or strolling in some of Dumaguete’s malls and establishments, she added.

For second-placer Casero, there are no hurt feelings between him and Alcoran. “We’re still friends,” he said in response to jokes about a crack in their friendship following Alcoran’s having upstaged her mentor.

Casero’s entry, Reflected Life, is a shot of the Rizal Boulevard as seen from a window. “It’s one of the most beautiful sceneries you’ll see in Dumaguete and it is the place for lovers; families or friends to spend time with each other and enjoy their togetherness,” Casero said.

Casero said the boulevard presents episodes of the people’s lives that come to the place. “It is the mirror of Dumagueteño’s reflected lives,” he said.

In third place was Donnie Luis Calsena while Alcoran again got a consolation prize. Other consolation prizes went to John “DX” Lapid and Maria Christine Abugan.

1st Place: Alma Zosan Alcoran – “Motorcycle Capital”. Most families in Dumaguete own at least one motorcycle, which is primarily used for their everyday trips. People prefer to drive the motorcycle because it doesn’t consume as much gas as a four-wheel vehicle. The motorcycle is also a good source of income for some who volunteer to park other people’s motorcycles and ensure these are protected from the hot sun.


2nd Place: Hersley-Ven Casero – “Reflected Life”. One of the most beautiful sceneries in Dumaguete is the boulevard. It is the place for lovers, families, friends to spend time with each other and enjoy their togetherness with the relaxing environment the boulevard offers. The lush green grass and the cool breeze of the ocean make one feel closer to nature. The boulevard is also the place for some of the City’s favorite delicacies like balut, tempura, green mango slices, corn on a cob, peanuts, and chicharon, ensuring people don’t get hungry as they walk along the coast. There are also restaurants lined up along the boulevard road for those who desire an excellent and elegant meal. But more than that, the Rizal Boulevard presents episodes of the people’s lives. The boulevard is the mirror of every Dumagueteño’s reflected lives.
