A Marketing Management student of Central Mindanao University (CMU) in Bukidnon bagged the grand prize in the first-ever E-Comics Making Contest hosted by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Northern Mindanao.
Justine Ceasar Andamon claimed the top prize, winning P10,000, for his entry entitled “Ang Diskarte ni Antonio.” The winning entry tells the story of how Antonio successfully shifted his struggling business to the digital platform through the help of DTI’s webinars and other assistance offered to MSMEs.

The E-Comics Making Contest was one of the major activities conducted in celebration of the Consumer Welfare Month this October. It was open to all students from public or private schools, colleges, or universities in Northern Mindanao with the aim to raise awareness on consumer programs and address consumer-related issues and concerns through the use of digital technology.
Andamon’s winning creation is the official entry of the region to DTI’s National E-Comics Making Contest. He will compete with other regional entries for a chance to win P30,000 worth of gift checks.
