An architecture student from Aklan State University (ASU) won this year’s on-the-spot Ati-Ati Poster Making Contest, beating 67 contenders from other schools in the province.

Stephen James Prado of Buruanga town received P10,000 for his vivid interpretation of the theme, “Ro Ati-Ati it Kalibo.”

Marc Jimley Crispino of Numancia, 16, an information technology student of GCT, grabbed the third place and got P2,000 cash.

Two won consolation prizes — Clint Tabares, 19, of Makato and an education student of Aklan Catholic College, and Cyril Ellis Anino, 16, of the Regional Science High School. They received P1,000 each.

Winners received their prizes from Vice Mayor Madeline Regalado, Kalibo Sto. Niño Ati-Atihan Foundation Inc. (KASAFI) chairman Albert Menez, KASAFI secretary Mila Balleza, and KASAFI vice president Lilibeth Goboy, during a ceremony at the KASAFI office.

A panel of distinguished members of the arts community composed of Patrick Lachica, Nina Candelario, Ma. Delia Ibesate and archictect Jose Dureza, selected the winning works.
