Since 1967, the Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino [Commission on Filipino Language] holds its annual essay competition in relation to the celebration of Buwan ng Wika (previously Linggo ng Wika). The Gawad KWF sa Sanaysay (previously called Gawad Surian sa Sanaysay - Gantimpalang Collantes) aims to sharpen, rekindle and further intellectualize the Filipino language.
Entries must be sent personally or via registered mail. Entries sent via e-mail will not be accepted. Deadline of entries is on July 1, 2013 (Monday).
The Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino is inviting all agencies, academic departments in Filipino, organizations and language centers who advocate for efficient implementation and development of Filipino language to enlist in its registry program.
KWF envisions establishing firm connections to organizations, agencies, associations and private groups for a wider scope of network and linkages even on the grassroots level. The registry program aims to give support and recognition to groups having common ideals with the Commission while at the same time synchronizing more dynamic and efficient researches on the vernacular and its cultural implications by developing a database, thus, avoiding unnecessary duplication. Moreover, the registry program hopes to harmonize all language-related projects to effectively address and provide solutions to issues faced by Filipino language.
