by Philstar

The Carlos Palanca Foundation announced yesterday 55 winners in this year’s Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature as well as the newest members of the Hall of Fame of the prestigious prize.

The 2009 Palanca Hall of Fame awardees are essayist Reuel Molina Aguila and poet Eugene Evasco, both professors at the University of the Philippines.

Aguila won his fifth first prize for his piece “Ngunit Wala Akong Litrato Noong Nasa Kolehiyo Ako” under the Sanaysay (essay in Filipino) category.

Evasco also received his fifth first prize for “May Tiyanak Sa Loob Ng Aking Bag” under the newly introduced category, Tulang Isinulat Para Sa Mga Bata (poetry for children).

The Palanca Hall of Fame is the distinction given to winners in the literary competition who have won five first prizes in the annual awards, and who, at the same time, have consistently met the critical standards of the various boards of judges, and have maintained a reputation in literary circles worthy of peer recognition.

The foundation said 62 percent of this year’s awardees are first time winners.

National Artist for Literature Bienvenido Lumbera was also conferred the Palanca Awards Gawad Dangal ng Lahi during the gala ceremonies held at The Peninsula Hotel Manila in Makati City.

Established in 1950 to honor Don Carlos Palanca Sr., the country’s most prestigious and longest-running literary contest “aims to help develop Philippine literature for writers to craft their most outstanding literary work; to be a treasury of the Philippines’ literary gems from our gifted writers; and to assist in its dissemination to the public, especially the students.”

In these new categories, envisioned to encourage the development of a body of poetry for young children, an entry must consist of a collection of at least 10 but not more than 15 poems. It may deal with any subject and must be comprehensible within the grade-school reading level of children ages 6-12, but accessible in its oral form by younger children.

Each contestant may submit only one entry per category.

 

Meanwhile, in the Kabataan Division, Palanca Awards’ special division for young writers below 18 years old, the Kabataan Essay theme in the English category is “How can the Filipino youth help build a globally competitive nation?” and in the Filipino category “Paano makatutulong ang kabataang Filipino sa pagtataguyod ng isang maunlad na bansa na maihahanay sa mga nangungunang bayan sa buong mundo?”

 

 

The literary contest is open to all Filipino (or former Filipino) citizens, except current officers and employees of its organizing body, the Carlos Palanca Foundation, Inc.  Contest rules and official entry forms are available at Palanca Awards’ official website, www.palancaawards.com.ph.
