The 2008 Salanga and Alcala Awards
Judging the Salanga Prize for two years in a row made me choose change this year.
I opted to wrestle with Ruben "Totet" De Jesus (PBBY President) and Liza Flores (Ang INK) for the Alcala Prize. This year's winner is none other than Serge Bumatay III. Two in a row for Bumatay since he won the Alcala last year for Jean Patindol's Tight Times.
For more information on the Salanga and the Alcala, visit the PBBY website. It is the 25th National Children's Book Day this year and the grand winners for both awards will be given quite a sum as cash prize.
