Motorbike riders are capturing the amazing natural and man-made wonders of the Central Visayas provinces in awe-inspiring pictures and videos through the contest series initiated by the Department of Tourism- Central Visayas (DOT7).

“Motor7 – The Geopark Ride to Recovery,” as the Bohol leg is captioned, advances from Bohol’s application for the coveted Global Geopark distinction with the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).  It is, to date, the only site in the Philippines being considered for the citation.

UNESCO Global Geoparks are identified for “sites and landscapes of international geological significance” holistically managed in a single, contiguous geographical area taking into consideration the concepts of protection, education, and sustainable development. The Geopark’s geological heritage and natural and cultural attributes call attention to social issues such as environmental degradation, climate change, and risks related to natural disasters.

DOT7 Chief Tourism Operations Officer Gelena Asis-Dimpas says riders traveling through Bohol may choose as their subjects any of the unique geosites within the newly-documented Motor7 circuits in the province – caves, karsts, springs, waterfalls, uplifted marine terraces, and uplifted coral garden. They may also opt to feature the indigenous Eskaya tribe in their entries aside from highlighting the local motorbiking culture.

Motorbiking is developing into a cultural phenomenon, a lifestyle that enables enthusiasts to celebrate the outdoors and bear witness to the bounties of the natural environment, appreciating the panoramic land and seascapes of the region while traversing mountain trails, highways, and seaside lanes.

Motor7 was established by the DOT7 as a regional program to fully harness the potential of the activity as a tourism product. Through its program status, Motor7 has sustained events that promote environmental awareness and conservation, heritage preservation, and livelihood development.

Dimpas adds, “The Motor7 Photo and Video Competition is helping riders appreciate the significance of open spaces, protection of land and seascapes, and our common heritage. It is also opening up opportunities for start-up food outlets, campsites, and other businesses.”

The contest is open to Central Visayas-based photography, videography, and motorcycle touring enthusiasts. Professionals and hobbyists alike are welcome to submit entries.
