MANILA – Despite the global coronavirus pandemic, property developer Robinsons Land aims to support local artists by bringing out their creativity with its first national painting contest ARTablado.
The competition serves as the first step in the property developer’s campaign to illustrate the beauty of the Philippines, showcase the future of arts, share Filipino culture and festivities, and create awareness and open the eyes of Filipinos on environmental changes.
With the theme “Create,” the competition has two categories: representational and non-representational.
It will be limited to works using acrylic or oil on canvas, hence mixed media is not allowed.
Furthermore, the art subject should be non-political, non-sectarian, and non-violent.
Participants, who should be Filipinos 18 years old and above, may send in only one entry per category until June 15, but there’s no restriction in submitting work for both sections.
Winners for both categories will receive P60,000 cash prize, a solo exhibition at Robinsons Galleria, an overnight stay at Summit Ridge Tagaytay, and a plaque.
Second prize winners get P40,000 in cash, an overnight stay at Summit Chimes in Greenhills, and a plaque.
Third prize winners get P20,000 in cash, an overnight stay at Summit Magnolia in Quezon City, and a plaque.
All winning entries will also be part of the 2020 ARTablado traveling exhibition.
Twenty-two finalists will be selected for both categories, each of whom will be handed P4,000 in cash.
Those who are interested to take part in the competition may find the complete rules and regulations in the official Facebook page of ARTablado.
