FILIPINAS CAN? CAN!

Background

As part of the Philippine Embassy’s activities for the 2023 National Women’s Month (NWM), and to increase participation and awareness of the Filipino Community in Singapore on NWM’s theme “WE for gender equality and inclusive society”, the Philippine Embassy will conduct a photo contest to encourage Overseas Filipinas working or residing in Singapore to post on Facebook their photo/s 1) wearing purple; 2) with their own interpretation of the NWM’s theme; and 3) by tagging the Facebook account of the Philippine Embassy (@PHinSingapore).

The participant with the winning photo entry will win a #DigitALL Bundle containing the following items perfect for the #JuanaOnTheGo: Medium-size traveling bag, a powerbank, wireless earphones, charging cables,  as well as a Certificate of Recognition from the Embassy.
