Contest Instructions

Sakay Na! The Philippines celebrates many symbols – the Rizal Monument, the sun and stars – but one of the most iconic symbols of the Philippines is…the Jeepney!

Do you know the origin of the Jeepney? In fact, the bright and beautiful Jeepneys that can be found all over the Philippines Islands today trace their heritage to military jeeps brought by the United States to the Philippines during World War II. This month on the U.S. Embassy Manila Facebook page, we’ll celebrate this shared piece of cultural heritage with the Sakay Na! Jeepney Photo Challenge. Come aboard!

Submit your best original (raw or edited) photo featuring a Philippine Jeepney. The person who submits the photo must be the photograph’s creator – entries on behalf of others will not be accepted.

This challenge is open to Philippine residents ages 13 and older.

Copyrighted photos or photos downloaded from the internet will not be considered valid entries. Edited photos may be submitted as long as they are the photographer’s own work. Winners will be determined by public voting and the top 3 photos with the highest number of votes will be selected as the winners.

Deadline for submission is on Thursday, February 19, 2012 11:59pm (Philippine time). Voting starts from February 20 12:00am to February 25, 2012 11:59pm
