Join the WikiPilipinas Filipina Writing Contest!

Saturday, February 2, 2008

Noemi Dado, a good friend of ours, gave us a heads-up on the special event via Facebook:

In line with the principle of honoring the diverse, beautiful, and powerful image of a Filipina, WikiPilipinas will launch a special portal, Encyclopedia of Philippine Women, inside the site which will compile and detail the achievements and triumphs of Filipinas everywhere.

Its sister site,, will also have a Philippine Women Microsite containing documents discussing Filipino women, as well as selected texts from the oeuvres of Filipina writers. Through a combined effort for advocacy, WikiPilipinas partnered with Filipina Images to help promote a more empowering image of the Filipina. By having an online platform to showcase Filipina intelligence and talent, the goal of developing more empowered Filipinas becomes achievable.

Many participants, through this project, will discover that they can help bridge the digital divide and promote gender mainstreaming and gender equality.

To promulgate the advocacy, and FilipinaImages.Com websites will launch “Filipina Stories", a writing contest with the mission of uplifting the image of the Filipina.
Here's your chance to put together an essay and share your thoughts, and win some prizes and props for doing so! Noemi adds:
I hope you join this contest. This contest also aims to raise awareness of the so that bloggers can eventually add content to the Wiki. For the contest, the WikiPilipinas staff will take charge of uploading your entry to the Wiki. After this contest, there will be a Phase 2 Workshop which is meant to teach us how to use the Wiki.

Be part in uplifting the image of the Filipina, the Knowledge base of the WikiPilipinas and meeting up with other bloggers on March 12, 2008. Remember you are not only writing about Filipino women. You will help uplift the reputation…remove the prejudice, not just against Filipino women achievers but against your mothers, sisters, daughters. Against You.
It's a worthy and noble cause- something definitely deserving of your attention, time and effort. Not only do you have a chance to win prizes, recognition and bragging rights, you also have (more importantly) an opportunity to interact with fellow bloggers and people who share a similar passion for writing, blogging and advocacy.
