Every year, exactly two days before the Sinulog Grand Parade, a different kind of competition is witnessed by thousands at the Cebu City Sports Complex. The lead dancers from participating Sinulog contingents compete for the coveted title Sinulog Festival Queen. To win the title, the lead dancer must have exceptional grace, poise, beauty, and talent.

Here are some photos from the Sinulog Festival Queen 2015 competition and awards night. Enjoy!
