Petron Student Art Competition Now Open for Entries
Everyone’s Vision Petron is a competition for photographers, painters and designers. It is also a venue for filmmakers, musicians, performance artists, art enthusiasts, and all Filipinos to converge and be one through their shared love for Philippine art and culture.
Themed Lakbay Kalikasan —A Journey of Nuturing Nature, this year’s competition focuses on the different ways of caring for and protecting the environment. Samples may be seen in Petron's own efforts to protect our biodiversity through coastal management, reforestation, mangrove planting, creating fish sanctuaries and artificial reefs, and protecting sea turtles.
Petron believes that everyone has his/her own unique perspective on things and that this uniqueness can be expressed in so many different ways. This is the inspiration behind Everyone’s Vision Petron — the belief that free artistic expression remains intrinsic to nation-building.
Everyone’s Vision Petron is open to all talented students enrolled in a regular university or college course, or in tutorial art and photography classes. Participants must be Filipino and ages 15-28 years old. Student artists may compete in three categories: Painting (oil and water-based media), photography, and print-making (production of printed images on paper).
Entries for the painting categories (oil and water-based media) should be no bigger than 4ft x 4ft unframed. Colored photography entries should be no bigger than 10 x 15 inches unframed. For the printmaking category, the minimum artwork size on paper is 12 x 16 inches but not more than 16 x 20 inches.
In the painting category, six Grand Prize winners will each receive P50,000; for the colored photography category, six Grand Prize winners will each receive P30,000; and in the printmaking category, three Grand Prize winners will each receive P30,000. Each Grand Prize winner will also receive a trophy/plaque designed by National Artist Napoleon Abueva.
