Invitation to NGOs/POs to bid to be NBDB partner for the 5th PILF

The National Book Development Board (NBDB), the leading catalyst for building a culture of reading and authorship, continually finds ways to increase Filipino readers’ awareness of the richness of our own literature. Every November, we organize the Philippine International Literary Festival (PILF), a celebration of books and a discussion of responsible industry practices.  

In the previous years, the Ayala Foundation, the Filipinas Heritage Library, and major universities in Metro Manila have worked with the NBDB to implement this annual celebration. For 2014, we invite qualified non-government institutions and people’s organizations to submit a formal bid to be NBDB’s partner. If your company or organization believes in playing an active role in the sustained development of our local book publishing industry, whether it be in terms of content enrichment and capacity building, providing readers better access to books, or promoting a general love of books and reading of our books in the local and international market, then you are a potential partner for this year’s celebration and eligible to bid for this project.
