National Students Art Competition Juan Art Nation
Artists have the power to channel their voice into their craft to command change. On Shell's 55th National Students Art Competition, we invite them to use their creativity and charge forward through art.
SULONG SINING is a call to arms, challenging the Filipino youth to lead the charge towards a brighter and better tomorrow, with art as their sword and shield.
More so than any generation that came before them, the youth of today value the opportunity of making an impact. And they are more than ready to make their voices be heard and their causes championed.
So we invite them to join the fight for change through their art. We encourage them to share their creative talents in a tangible way, and in doing so – show us who they are, what they value, and what they envision for the future.
Through NSAC 55, we aim to empower the youth so they may see that tomorrow, and all it can be, is in their hands. Guided by their unique perspectives, grounded by their heritage and experiences, and inspired by their hopes and dreams, they can imagine the future we need and deserve. Using art as their tool, they can actively shape the future, show us how to keep the Philippines moving onward, and help in building the nation.
SULONG SINING is about CHARGING FORWARD [SULONG] through ART [SINING].
From the talented hands of the country’s young creative minds are works that inspire and unite. These 12 artworks are the big winners of various categories in the 54th Shell National Students Arts Competition.
Whether artists are born or made is debatable, but the talents and contributions of these renowned masters in the Filipino art scene are undeniable.
