Philippine Art Awards

First held in 1994, the Philippine Art Awards has evolved through the years. It was initially conceived as part of the ASEAN Art Awards, where the Philippine winners competed with their counterparts from Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

After 14 seasons, almost fifteen thousand competition entries and ten ASEAN wins, Philippine Art Awards has maintained its stature as the Philippines’ most preeminent contemporary art competition and exhibition today.

In the spirit of innovation and in recognition of the importance of art and artistic expression in enhancing our environment and our daily lives, Philippine Art Awards (PAA) welcome all participating visual artists to its 2013-2014 competition.
