Calling all college artist out there! Here is an another exciting event you all - introducing the MyPhone MyArt Competition! In a time when school supremacy has come to be dictated by sports, MyPhone creates a new arena for school rivalry—the canvas.
This year and for the first time, the mobile phone giant known for being a champion of Philippine culture and heritage presents My Art Competition—a series of competitions that will scour local universities far and wide in its quest to honor and bring to fame the finest group of students in the field of Fine Arts.
The first leg of the art competition is the oil painting division. Aside from artistic flair, the contest requires from its participants a lot of teamwork and school spirit. To enter the competition, one must form a team of ten (10) college students. While participants are not required to be Fine Arts majors, teammates must come from the same university.
Following this year’s theme, Freedom, teams will enter a collection of ten (10) original oil painting pieces, one from each member. Interested parties are invited to submit entries from September 1 to October 10.
The fifteen (15) teams with the highest cumulative scores will have their works exhibited at the Green Sun in Makati City, a first of its kind creative hub that nurtures young Filipino artists.
On December 11, 2014, MyPhone will present the following awards: the Best University Art Club, the Best Artist, and the People’s Choice, which will be determined through social media.
Over P500,000 worth of prizes await the winners. The Best University Art Club will receive P200,000 and MyPhone Aqua Rio phones, the Best Artist will receive P100,000 and a MyPhone Infinity phone, and the People’s Choice will receive P50,000 and a MyPhone Aqua Rio phone.
The biggest prize that the young student artists will receive, however, is glory - school supremacy and a privileged entry into the local arts industry.
Through My Art Competition, MyPhone aims to empower the Filipino youth through art. By providing them with a venue for their craft that encourages healthy competition, camaraderie, and school spirit, MyPhone believes that they can help each other become the best that they can be.
