Canvas is pleased to announce that Fernando Gonzales has won the 2006 Romeo Forbes Children's Storywriting Competition for his story "Ang Batang Maraming Bawal."
The panel of judges was composed of Lito Zulueta (arts and culture editor of the Philippine Daily Inquirer), children's book author and Palance Awardee Becky Bravo, and Gigo Alampay (executive director of Canvas).
The judges had a very difficult time choosing from a number of excellent entries. The other stories that were considered as finalists were: Charlene Dy's "Pico and the Magic Lunchbox," Gerald Tejada's "Doc Oying," Jonathan Siason's "Manuelito and the Red Balloon," Joanna Lim's "Juan Smith," Larisa Chavez' "Tatakas si Toto," Joseph Paul Villarosa's "The City in the Sky," and Dinah Ladia's "I, Reluctant Runaway."
The winning story, along with the stories that were shortlisted for the final deliberations, are posted in the Canvas website.
