THE 2016 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) is on its final leg of accepting entries to its design and theme song writing competitions. These activities have been mounted in line with the major changes which the festival’s board of directors announced earlier this year in terms of selection criterion for the annual showcase of Filipino movies.
The executive committee hopes that the winning entries will help set the tone to much improved MMFF come December.

Logo entries, preferably in vector format, must be sent with the registration form at email@example.com.
The MMFF Logo Design competition winner will receive P20,000.00 in cash, all-access passes to all MMFF movies for two, and a Sony tablet.
Meanwhile, for the MMFF Theme Song Making competition, participants may submit up to three entries in MP3 format. Song entries must be three to five minutes long, written in English or Filipino, and must fit the committee’s selection criteria: musicality (30 percent), lyrics (30 percent), originality (30 percent), and impact (10 percent). Song entries must be sent with the lyrics (in Word format) with the registration form at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The MMFF Theme Song Making competition winner will receive P50,000in cash, all-access passes to all MMFF movies for two, and a Sony tablet.
