Though often believed to reinforce conservative views on the progress of native literature--most of the winners hardly write anything new--the awards work well in the present social context, i.e. it offers nothing to disrupt the elite in their hundred-year siesta. -- (12:22, February 28, 2006)

this might be true to some filipino writers today, specially those writing in english. but i read most of the winning works in filipino and iloko divisions and they offer something. but only if they are read. because filipinos do not really read. filipinos shun serious literature. literary writers have but very limited readers or audience. --Saluyot
