The top 3 winners were hand-picked by the esteemed board of judges -- Althea Roa of UP Painters club, Leo Gerardo C. Leonardo from Philippine High School for the Arts, and Janelle Cabrera UP Painters Club.

An exhibit was also launched during the same day at the lobby of the LARC Main Office that showcased its achievements for the past year. These achievements include corporate social responsibility initiatives, improvements in its customer and frontline services, and other projects to improve the efficiency and the reliability of the water supply system.
One of the highlights of the said exhibit is the construction of a new one million-liter reservoir at PuypuY Bay. The recently completed reservoir will enhance water reliability by increasing pressure in Bay and some areas in Los Banos and Calauan.
