It was one long, hot – no, make that, VERY hot – day last June 27 in Tacloban City for many of us photographers and photo enthusiasts who covered the Pintados-Kasadyaan Festival of Festivals under the heat of the unmerciful sun.

As expected, the Buyogan Festival of Abuyog, Leyte bagged the top prize – a cool P500,000 – with their terrific, frenzied and simply “wow!” performance making one Manila blogger predict that Buyogan would grab again the 2011 Grand Champion title of next year’s Sinulog Festival of Cebu and the Aliwan Festival of Festivals in Metro-Manila.

Here are the final results for the Kasadyaan Festival of Festivals:

Best in Streetdance – Buyogan Festival of Abuyog, Leyte
