The National Alliance of Youth Leaders (NAYL), in partnership with the Commission and Elections (Comelec) and the Philippine Collegian, the University of the Philippines’ official publication, has launched an “Anti-Epal Photo Contest,” an advocacy campaign “for a clean and fair national elections”

According to Collegian’s Facebook page on April 5, “The “Anti-Epal Photo Contest” is part of “Tatak Botante’s” campaign on voters’ registration and education. It takes advantage of social media as a powerful platform to expose public officials who are “epal” coming from the root word “mapapel” or attention-grabbers who post paraphernalia in government projects funded by the taxpayers’ money and get credit that they do not deserve,” according to the FB post.

“Tatak Botante” is an advocacy campaign of the National Alliance of Youth Leaders with the slogan “Tatak Botante: Matalino, Matalas, Malaya”.

Open to Filipinos, the submission period is from April 9 to April 17 through Tatak Botante’s FB account and email address tatakbotante.est2012@gmail.com.

Criteria are theme relevance, 25 percent; creativity, 25 percent: content, 25 percent; and overall impact (FB likes), 25 percent.

“Pass your entries and show to the whole country how you feel about these epal politicians!” added the FB post.
