CANVAS is pleased to announce that Kate Osias has won our 10th Romeo Forbes Children's Storywriting Competition for her story, "The Triangle Man and the Flightless Diwata."

Other finalists, in no particular order, included Gabriela Lee ("The Carpenter and His Boy"), Gigi Constantino ("May Baybayin sa Gubat"), May Jandayan ("Dingding ng Pangarap") and Raissa Falgui ("If You Marry a Fairy").

The judges were MIren Alvarez Fabregas (stage actress, producer, film editor and mommy to 2 wildly imaginative little boys); Erika Tiu (a grade school instructor in Community of Learners who is also into graphic arts and cats); and Gigo Alampay (Executive Director of CANVAS).

Congratulations, Kate and all the rest of the finalists! And thank you to all the writers who participated! We look forward to bringing the winning tale to life as a full color children's book next year! :-)
