TACLOBAN CITY – The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in Eastern Visayas (Region 8) is excited to announce the commencement of the 60th Fish Conservation Week Poster-Making Competition. This artistic initiative aims to inspire the youth to celebrate marine life and foster conservation efforts through their creative expressions.

The competition is open to residents aged 12-16, residing in Eastern Visayas' coastal communities. To participate, interested contestants must undergo a screening process. Schools within the region may nominate one representative, supported by a sample artwork in any medium. 

BFAR regional office, situated at MRGP Building in Marasbaras, Tacloban City, will evaluate submitted artworks with the assistance of a designated panel of judges.

DepEd School Divisions also have the opportunity to join by selecting an Official Representative. A recommendation from the School Division Head must accompany the official student-representative's artwork, either physically or digitally, to BFAR 8. All submissions must be made by August 30, 2023, for consideration.

Immerse yourself in the realm of your imagination and allow your creativity to ripple freely like the ocean's currents!...

Out-of-school youth can also participate directly by submitting their entries to the BFAR Regional Office 8 Information, Education, and Communication (IEC) Unit by the same deadline.

The final round of the competition will take place on September 18, 2023, in Tacloban City. The top 10 contestants will have 2-3 hours to create and submit their artwork based on a theme related to Fisheries Conservation.
