Metrobank Art & Design Contest

Friday, February 20, 2015 jeffrey siy 0 Comments

The Metrobank Art & Design Excellence continues its search for artistic excellence in the field of painting and sculpture among local artists. This is to discover the youth's potential and provide opportunities to launch their career in the field. If you think you have the gift and ability, showcase your artwork in Painting or Sculpture category. Though you can submit entries with an open theme, it is encouraged that you emphasize on the role of art in the promotion of Philippine Culture and its contribution to defining our Filipino identity. Submit a photo of your masterpiece (not the actual artwork) addressed to Metrobank Foundation, Inc. on or before the deadline. Then wait if you will be shortlisted to be a semifinalist. P400,000 worth of prizes + trophy designed by sculptor Noéll El Farol await the Grand Prize winners in both Painting and Sculpture categories. In addition, a grant entitlement for first solo exhibition will also be given to the successful champions in the Painting category.
