The theme for the fifth installment of LAF revolves around the Metro and the lives of the people in it. Manila, being the Capital City of the Philippines, is also the seat of power, center of change and a place where every person has a story to tell.

This year, LAF will take you to the streets of Manila through Literary, Elocution and Art contests. For Literary, poem writing and essay writing.

Elocution will have slam poetry and extemporaneous speech. For arts, there will be short filmmaking, poster making, mural making and many more.

Experience Manila on the 13th day of October of 2019 at Centro Escolar University- Manila.
