City Government of Davao

A TOTAL of ten contingents will compete to take home the Indak-Indak P2-M grand prize money.

Event Organizer Harold Quibete, during the AFP-PNP Press Corps Media Forum at the Royal Mandaya Hotel on Wednesday, said that five contingents for the open category and five for the Davao school-based category would fight for the grand prize of the Indak-Indak sa Kadayawan Competition set on Aug. 20.

The final list of participants for the Davao-Based Category included Sta. Ana National High School (the defending champion), Mabini National High School, Bernardo D. Carpio National High School, Doña Carmen Denia National High School, and the Technical Education and Skills Development XI. 

For the open category, the participants are from the Samal Island City College – Local Government Unit of the Island Garden City of Samal, Palabuniyan Cultural Dance Ensemble – LGU of the Municipality of Pikit in North Cotabato, and Sidlakan Performing Ensemble of the Municipality of Malita in Davao Occidental, Youth OLMAG Performing Arts Guild of Kidapawan City, and defending champion Sindac Anib Performing Ensemble from Bislig City, Surigao del Sur who will defend their title as Indak Indak sa Kadayawan 2019 winner. 

For the open and Davao City school-based categories, each grand champion will get P1 million, P500,000 for the second place winners, P 400,00 for the third place, P300,000 for the fourth place, and P200,000 for the fifth place. 

The Best Music will get P20,000, Best Choreography (P50,000), and the Best Mask (P20,000). 

Quibete said that the Best Mask category in the competition is the newest feature of the Indak-Indak. The winning group must also wear it properly and incorporate it well into their costume.

“[For the best mask] it should be wearable, it should have artistic value and it should be relevant to the type of presentation, more especially, it should match their costumes,” Quibete said, adding that there is no regulation on mask design, as long as it covers the nose and mouth. 

 As to the concern that the dancers might find it uncomfortable to wear masks while dancing, Quibete said they have to stand by with the city’s ordinance requiring mouth and nose protection.

“Actually if ever we (allow) performers… To not wear masks, we might as well remove all of our masks because it is very uncomfortable seeing a performance wearing mask. We have to understand the fact that we have to wear masks because this is part of the recommendation of our City Health Office and the City Government of Davao to observe our minimum health protocols,” Quibete said.

Quibete said that while mask wearing is mandatory, it was suggested during a meeting that contingents should do rehearsals with masks so they will be trained and sustain their energy level from the Rotunda up to the San Pedro Square. 

The Indak-Indak will start at 7 a.m. from Roxas Avenue to Corner C.M Recto Avenue, then to Rotunda Ponciano-Roxas Avenue, then right turn to C.M Recto Avenue, then right turn to Bonifacio Street, then left turn to Pelayo St., then left turn to San Pedro St. 

The showdown/ judging areas will be Rotunda Ponciano, Bonifacio St. Corner Pelayo St., and San Pedro Square.
