The much-awaited and highly anticipated visual art competition in the country is now officially open. After another successful run in 2012 wherein Cagayan De Oro artist Jericho Valjusto Vamenta bagged the much coveted Grand Prize plum, the 2013 competition promises to be even more challenging with inquiries about the competition coming in as early December 2012.
PMFTC, Inc., organizer of Philippine Art Awards (PAA), is highly enthusiastic about the competition and is expecting a lot of entries this year. “We are very pleased to acknowledge the ever growing popularity of the competition through the years as indicated by the steady stream of inquiries even before the official announcement. It validates our efforts to continually support the development of Philippine artists and Philippine art in general. The PAA has also lined up other programs alongside the competition to bolster these efforts,” said Ms. Bayen Elero, Corporate Affairs Director of PMFTC, Inc.
