Sinulog Festival Queen 2011

The Search for the Sinulog Festival Queen is a contest held two days before the Sinulog Grand Parade. If you’re not so sure what it is, listen up. The Search for the Sinulog Festival Queen is an annual contest which aims to determine the best female lead dancer. The winners are chosen based on how they carry themselves as they dance bearing the image of the Sto. Niño. This year, 20 contestants from various contingents joined the contest.

Here are some of the photos I took during the event. You must know, however, that the photos are very far from perfect. I still don’t fully understand some functions of my camera. Hehehe. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the photos. Pit Senyor!


This year’s Search for the Sinulog Festival Queen 2011 has 20 contestants – the biggest number since its inception.

A few minutes before the start of the program. The stage looked pretty nice.
