According to the Greek philosopher Aristotle, the aim of art is to “represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.” This quote best describes the participants’ workmanship and creativity in the competition.


The annual competition aims to promote art appreciation; enhance the student participants’ abilities, capabilities, skills, talents and potential in the arts; and awaken their consciousness on causes that address critical issues. – Marville Badua
