I’d been to the 5th official meeting about the Komiks and Exhibit last night held in Max’xs Restaurant, Quezon Avenue at around 8:00 pm led by KWF Komisyon ng Wikang Filipino) Commisioner Joe Lad Santos.

There are minor changes in schedules and this is OFFICIAL:

The meeting formally announced the official guidelines of a Komiks Writing/Making Contest sponsored by Carlo J Caparas., he will give a total 150,000 for the prizes and consolations. And this is also to be publicly announced during the Komiks Congress. It will be open for everyone regardless what style.

The 5th meeting was attended by several Great Artists writers, and personalities in the Philippine Komiks industry. A preview of what will happen to Komiks Congress has transpired on the meeting . All of the attendees has expressed their concerns and love on Filipino Komiks.

There is also a serious effort from the part of Komisyon on Wikang Filipino and National Commission for Culture and the Arts to make this advocacy a national interest and one of its action plan is to conduct series of Komiks Exhibits across the Philippine archipelago to have a nation wide effect. The said plan was realize because of the big role of komiks in promoting the National Philippine Language which is Filipino.

The Komiks Exhibit and Komiks Congress is inviting all Filipino people who loves Philippine Komiks , especially the youth sector. The Congress is our time to express our concerns on our beloved industry, come and join with us…!!!

Below are some images taken during the 5th meeting:

Wala pa palangng guidelines para sa pa-contest ni Mr. Caparas. Sa tarpaulin kasi nakalagay na "Feb. 28, 2007" ang deadline ng contest. I'll wait na lang for the official announcement.
