Calling all student artists out there!

Top 15 teams will be selected and have their original artworks exhibited at the Green Sun for 3 months (5 teams per month). There will be 3 awards that will be given to chosen winners. The Best Artist will receive P100,000 + MyPhone Infinity phone, the Best University Art Club will be awarded with P200,000 + 10 MyPhone Aqua Rio, and the People's Choice will take home P50,000 + MyPhone Aqua Rio phone.
