More Photo Competition

‘Bringing more to life’ is the theme for the MORE photo competition initiated by More Electric and Power Corporation (MORE Power), in collaboration with the Photographic Society of Iloilo. MORE invites participants to submit their best shot that depicts the tagline – as well as illustrate how energy is significant in today’s modern living. The participation fee is free.

“Energy drives the modern world and underpins every other issue. We depend on it for just about everything in our homes and businesses. In fact, we cannot perform most of our daily tasks without it. And while we know that people do appreciate its value, we would like to see it in visual form,” an excerpt from the social media post of MORE Power.
