The PWC is a competition held every last Saturday of each month, which begins in the month of February and ends in the month of November of each year, and participated in by its affiliated members. The theme “X Mark” entered by NCC and picked by FPPF as the theme of the month automatically entitled the former to be the host. Last year, in the month of June, NCC also hosted the FPPF-PWC photo contest for the adapted theme “Pinoy Summer.”
