ART IS A BANG: Call for Entries for Manila Archdiocese Painting Competition

Young Filipino artists will have a chance to showcase their talent and passion for the art at the Manila archdiocese’s 5th annual painting competition.

Organized by the archdiocese’s Commission for the Cultural Heritage of the Church, the contest has actually started last December and scheduled to end this month.

The theme for this year’s competition is “The Rosary, its Mysteries and the Filipino Family.” The contest is open to Filipino students and out-of-school youths, ages 15 to 25 years old. Organizers said the contest hopes to foster contemporary artistic interpretations of the Catholic faith particularly among young artists, and seeks to promote awareness and appreciation of religious art.

The first prize-winner will take home P40,000. The second placer will receive P30,000. The winner for third place will receive P20,000. Three “Juror’s Choices” will also receive P10,000 each.

Submission of artwork entries is on Jan. 27, 2012 at the Museo ng Arkidiyosesis ng Maynila in Intramuros, Manila. Awarding of winners will be on February 4, 2012.

Entry forms for those who are still interested to join are available at the MACC office, in selected schools and parishes, or may be downloaded at the archdiocese’s official website . [CBCPNews]
