Traditionally, art competitions are entry points for young artists aspiring for reward and recognition. Initiated by the Art Association of the Philippines after the war, under the leadership of the late Purita Kalaw Ledesma, the annual competition was instrumental in discovering the talents of Filipino artists, many of them now proclaimed National Artists.
Inspired by this pioneering advocacy, several institutions and corporations have followed suit and launched their own sponsored national art contests. To their credit and the gratitude of succeeding generations of young artists, these competitions have lasted through the decades, generating greater awareness and appreciation from the public. No doubt the development of Philippine contemporary art has been spurred by art competitions, which brought to public attention the most noteworthy artists of the time.
“Southwind” runs until March 31.
