Vision Petron 2013: Now Accepting Entries
Vision Petron, the award-winning national student art competition of industry leader Petron Corporation is now calling for entries for its 13th iteration, with the theme Lakbay Tagumpay—A Journey of Triumphs and Milestones.
This year Vision Petron continues the road to rediscovery by celebrating our individual triumphs and historical victories. We dwell deeper into the Filipino psyche and focus on what defines us through our sense of achievement; how these fulfill us and make us proud and strive even harder through lessons learned in life. Examples for Lakbay Tagumpay could evolve around goals and beliefs in life. Values of determination, discipline, love for one’s work, patience, sacrifice for the greater good are related to one’s success in life.
Vision Petron is a partnership between Petron Corporation and the youth, both sharing a common advocacy of preserving Philippine art and culture, values, traditions and skills. It 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 16-28 years old.
