To mark the National Heritage Month celebration this May 2019, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts through the Subcommission on Cultural Heritage launches the 2019 National Heritage Month Audio-Visual Presentation (AVP) Contest: #TanglawNgPamana. 

I. Rationale

By virtue of Presidential Proclamation No. 439 s. 2003, the month of May is National Heritage Month. The celebration takes a prime in creating among the Filipino people a consciousness, respect, and love for the legacies of the nation’s cultural history. For 2019, the theme for the National Heritage Month is “MgaPinuno para saPamana” (Leaders for Heritage) as a challenge to each and every individual to take the lead in preserving and promoting their cultural heritage. It aims to educate the people, especially the youth, and foster their awareness of both tangible and intangible heritage; recognize and support the role of local artists and cultural workers in preserving local tradition; and initiate ways to promote preservation and care for our cultural heritage.
