Update: This program has been extended til the end of July 2008.
Otto has come a long way from its first free-standing shoe store with five employees. Since 1979, Otto has been manufacturing high quality footwear famed for being comfortable and trendy. Driven by passion for innovation and Filipino pride, the people behind Otto continuously strive to deliver only the best. From the steel toe bulldogs and Indian moccasins that were all the rage some seasons ago, Otto has not stopped evolving, each success serving as inspiration to further hone their craft. It is this enthusiasm for great designs that keeps Otto at the top of its game. And the shoe brand is taking its quest for the next groundbreaking style to an entirely new level.
Otto recently launched the Proud Pinoy Shoe Design Contest. The competition hopes to open doors for untapped Filipino talent. It is the perfect chance for High School and College students as well as non-professional shoe designers to share their vision for local footwear and see their own masterpiece being sold on Otto's shelves.
Aside from this honor, awaiting the winners are prizes that include cash, Otto products, and the chance to create even more shoe styles for Otto. A grand winner will be chosen from each of the three categories — High school, College and non-professional.
The design entry which must exude Pinoy pride, can be sketched with pencil, crayon, oil, poster paint or via computer graphics. Entries can be submitted to Black Tie Event, Room 503B State Condominium 1, Salcedo St. Legaspi Village, Makati. Deadline for submission of entries is on July 31, 2008. To see posters for more details, visit any participating Otto store.
