Wazzup Pilipinas!

Thirty entries from all over the Philippines were chosen out of 87 art works submitted for the 31st edition of the DPC-PLDT Visual Arts Competition (VAC31) which challenged fine arts students nationwide to interpret the theme “Habang May Buhay, May Pag-asa”.

The finalist entries consisted of realistic, abstract and graphic paintings that depict how Filipinos look at life, what they value and how they remain cheerful and hopeful in spite of adversities that they face.

Prior to the final judging and the awards night scheduled on March 23, 2017, the finalist entries will be displayed in an exhibit at Pasilyo Vicente Manansala at the Cultural Center of the Philippines from March 18 to 23. The exhibit is open to the public and admission is free.

The top three winners will have their works on the covers of the Philippine Long Distance Company’s telephone directories for 2017-18, both for the DPC (Yellow Pages) and the PLDT (White Pages). The first place winner will also receive P100,000 in cash and the VAC31 Grand Prize Trophy, plus a P40,000 donation to his/her school’s fine arts program. Second and Third Prize winners will receive P75,000 and P60,000 in cash, respectively, trophies, plus corresponding donations to their respective schools.

“All the finalists deserve their spot in the Top 30. Their depiction of the theme, which came from different perspectives, were all all rendered creatively and with very well-developed technical talent. This is a testament to the quality of training and mentorship provided by our fine arts schools around the country. We believe that competitions like ours have a role in infusing a climate of excitement and friendly, creative rivalry among the fine arts schools that provide dynamism to the art environment across the country,” said DPC-PLDT VAC 31 Project Manager Ruben Tangco.

The VAC annual competition is a much-awaited event in the art world, particularly for young artists, as it opens up opportunities and gives recognition to the abundance of creative and artistic talent available in the country’s fine arts schools.
