The Jose Rizal-inspired pandemic art youth contest “Kabataan Laban sa Covid-19 Pandemic” winners have been revealed.
TKP-Kilusang Kreatives released on April 5, 2021, a video announcement of the winners of the nationwide contest which awarded top prizes to youths from Cebu, Laguna, and Tarlac.
The top 3 winners were deliberated upon by TKP-Kilusang Kreatives, a non-profit group aimed at fostering the patriotism of the Filipino youth through art and creativity, from the 10 finalists announced on Rizal Day in December 2020.
The youth contest of pandemic art was launched in June 2020 coinciding with the birth anniversary of the Philippine national hero to whom TKP-Kilusang Kreatives finds its model of “patriotism through art” from his poetic words “the youth is the hope of the country” that the organization credits for its passion to serving the youth sector.
After receiving submissions from almost 150 Filipino youth, 47 of the finest artworks which carried a message of hope amidst these harsh times were selected from which five judges deliberated for the top 10 that were shortlisted for the final awards.
The “Kabataan Laban sa Covid-19 Pandemic” winners are:
The 1st Place went to Cebu’s Shalen Gamulo Galocgoc whose art was titled, “PRAY for our NATION”.
The 2nd Place went to Laguna’s Jun Ivanne Dalman whose artwork carried the theme, “PAGKAKAISA sa PAGKAKAIBA” (Unity in Diversity).
The 3rd Place went to Laguna’s Mark Jerald De Asis whose art carried the theme, “YOUTH CONSANGUINITY in the DREAD of PANDEMIC”.
A Special Award was also announced by organizer Joey Mosqueda for Tarlac’s Marianne Faith Aviso who received the Most ONLINE Votes Award for her artwork, “WE FIGHT as ONE!”
