During my university days, we were encouraged to join art contest, and Shell NSAC (National Students Art Competition) was the one of the first contests I ever joined - the others are Metrobank Young Painters Annual and UST's On-the-Spot Painting contest. My entry during that time was included on the select entries to be exhibited on Shangrila Mall. It was sold by the end of the exhibit. after my initial tries i went on to join 3 more of years of NSAC.
Fast forward 2012, Shell once again is calling out for entries for the 45th Shell National Students Art Competition.
