    LAMPARA BOOKS ANNOUNCES WINNER IN ILLUSTRATOR’S PRIZE

     

    The 7th Lampara Illustrator’s Prize was announced last April 5, 2018. Two and a half months later, Lampara Publishing House, Inc.(LPHI), the sponsor of the contest announces the winner.

     

     

    Kristine Angela Demetrio from Cebu City won the contest. A graduate of AB Philosophy, she will now have the right to illustrate Ang Lumang Makina ni Lola Mina written by Mary Grace Borja, the first prize-winning entry from the 7th Lampara Children’s Story Writing Contest, also sponsored by LPHI.

    The book will be published by LPHI through its banner book imprint, Lampara Books.

    Demetrio won a cash prize of PHP 25,000.00 and a certificate of merit. This is aside from the illustrator’s talent fee that she will be earning from illustrating the book. 

    For this year, the board of judges were Adelio Sales, Alen Poala Mangabat and Karla Cristy Caindoy from the LPHI Art Department. The judging was done at the office of LPHI last 8 June 2018, with the attendance of a DTI representative.

    The awarding ceremony will be held at the SMX Mall of Asia International Convention Center in September 2018 during the 39th Manila International Book Fair.
