In celebration of the ASEAN Month in August, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) calls on Filipino citizens (age 18 and above) to submit original creative outputs inspired by the theme We Care, We Prepare, We Prosper. 

The ASEAN Philippines Digital Art Contest 2021 aims to showcase the best expressions in digital art by Philippine amateur and professional artists while highlighting the cultural uniqueness and identity being shared by the whole ASEAN community. 

The prescribed categories in relation to the context/meaning of the digital art output relevant to the whole ASEAN region (instead of just national) are:

  • ASEAN community concerns (political, economic, socio-cultural)
  • Health care concerns, safety and resilience (ASEAN region in scope) 
  • Art concerns (ASEAN region art markets, materials and production, exhibitions, motivations, etc.) 
  • Personal concerns (Self, family, and community as part of the whole ASEAN region)

The process of the contest will be done online, from submission of entries to the selection and announcement of winners.

All entries must be created with digital technology and presented in various formats of stand-alone digital art image such as, but not limited to: graphic poster, web comic, fractal/algorithmic art, data-moshing, dynamic painting, 2D and 3D computer graphics, pixel art, digital photography, photo-painting, manual vector drawing, integrated art/mixed media and hybrid painting, raster painting and computer-generated painting.
