DINAGYANG FESTIVAL 2014 Official Results

Tribu Panayanon of Iloilo City National High School

Pintaflores Festival of San Carlos City, Negros Occidental 


        The defending champion, Tribu Panayanon of Iloilo City National High School retained its title as it was announced as the over-all winner of the world famous Dinagyang Festival 2014. It first won the title in 2005 under the name Tribu Silak.
       Aside from the top prize, Tribu Panayanon also collected several special awards from opening salvo to the main competition awards. 1st runner-up went to Tribu Ilonganon of Jalandoni Memorial National High School, 2nd runner-up went to Tribu Salognon of Jaro National High School, 3rd runner-up went to Tribu Paghidaet of La Paz National High School and 4th runner-up went to Tribu Baybayanon of Melchor Nava National High School in Calaparan, Arevalo. Aside from cash prizes and trophy, the Champion and 1st runner-up will go on a world tour and this time, they will go to Singapore, US and Canada. 

       On the other hand, Kasadyahan Regional Showcase featuring the best street dance festivals in Western Visayas region was decided that only one competing tribe will win as the best performing group this year. Iloilo Dinagyang Foundation, Inc. sympathizes with some of the towns, cities and provinces in the region which was affected by the typhoon Yolanda in November, 2013 and make the sub-Dinagyang attraction a regional showcase to show the world that amidst the difficulties, hardships and tragedies and against all odds, we can stand up once again and life must go on.
       Dinagyang Festival competition which was started in 1970 is the only Philippine festival that has an official mascot named Dagoy and goes on a world tour in promoting not just the festival but also the Philippines as a tourist destination. In 2011, the winning tribe, Tribu Pan-ay went on to perform in New York City and other neighboring U.S. cities like Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles for the Philippine Independence Day event sponsored by the Filipino community there. Last year, the winning tribe went to New York and California to perform in the Philippine Independence Day celebration sponsored by the Filipino community in the United States highlighted by their performance in the famed New York Times Square. This year, the winning tribe will go to Canada  to perform in some Canadian cities like Toronto, Vancouver, Winnipeg and Calgary. There is a plan by the Iloilo Dinagyang Foundation Inc. that they might not send an entry and skip Aliwan Fiesta this year so that the fund intended for the tribe's participating in that competition will be used instead in their tour abroad.
