Starting off with an orientation for guidelines and safety with the safety officer and the marketing department officers in the Aeon Towers Showroom, the photographers were strictly accompanied up the top floor so that they can capture creative images from sunrise to sundown.

Aeon Towers is a 33-storey mixed-use flagship project of Aeon Luxe Properties –a premier property development company through its parent company FTC Group of Companies. It is known to be the first tallest in Mindanao with a height of 103.5m that features a 360 degree view of Davao City. The building will feature an infinity pool on its 33rd floor, inspired by Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands SkyPark. A looming iconic structure at the heart of the city’s business district, Aeon Towers will soon rise completely with a residential, hotel, serviced apartment and commercial components that will give a boost to the city of Davao.

The company President, Mr. Ian Y. Cruz, aims to redefine the condominium living experience in the entire Mindanao with Aeon Towers and its second coming project Aeon Bleu, an inland resort condominium in a mixed-use community.

The photo contest’s main goal is not only to get the tops shots literally, but to promote Davao’s development and progress in the economic and tourism phases through its ever changing landscapes.
