A photograph that captured fishermen harvesting “bangus” (milkfish) in Dagupan City won for Inquirer photo correspondent Willie Lomibao this year’s agriculture photo of the year in the 12th Bright Leaf Agriculture Journalism Awards.
Lomibao’s winning photo, “Pond Harvest,” was the banner picture in the Inquirer’s Regions section on April 12.
The Inquirer’s Baguio City-based correspondent, Karlston Lapniten, won best agriculture news story (regional) for his piece on “Brewing enough coffee for the Filipino Cup” that came out in Baguio Chronicle.
About 600 entries competed for the awards in the annual competition that honors excellent stories and photos published, aired or broadcast in print, radio, TV and online. —Gabriel Cardinoza
