Sinulog Festival Queen 2014

The Search for the Sinulog Festival Queen is a yearly event which aims to find the most graceful and most talented Sinulog lead dancer. This two-day event consists of a runway competition (on the first day) held at SM City Cebu and a performance/production competition (on the second day) held at the Cebu City Sports Center.

By the way, before we proceed to the photos, let me just thank Mam Vivian (ianne) for helping me secure a Sinulog Photographer’s ID. Without her help, I wouldn’t be able to have access to these awesome Sinulog events! 🙂 Thank you, mam Vivian!

So, yeah, here are some photos of the event. Sorry for the quality, though. Wasn’t able to borrow a zoom lens so I had to destroy the ‘crop’ button for a lot of these shots. Hehe.

The Search for the Sinulog Festival Queen is one of the highlights of the whole Sinulog Festival.

The first part – the Runway Competition – was held on January 16 at the Northwing of SM City Cebu.

The second part – group presentation and solo performances were held on January 17 at the Cebu City Sports Center.

Here are the finalists in their opening number.
