Shell's RestART aims to rebuild dreams through art

From last year's "Hope in Our Art" creations that depicted hope through art, Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation's Shell National Students Art Competition (NSAC) takes on an equally relevant theme this year – RestART, which encourages young artists to come up with artworks that inspire and contribute to a stronger and better country.

Shell's RestART aims to rebuild dreams through art

As Pilipinas Shell’s unwavering commitment to Philippine art, it has launched the Juan Art Nation, a campaign that aims to broaden programs for its growing community of artists.

The 54th Shell National Students Art Competition (NSAC), one of the longest-running student art competitions in the country, is among the programs under the Juan Art Nation campaign.

“We encourage the youth to actively take part in shaping the future of the Philippines, using art as a tool and guide. Shell is committed to help shape the country’s leaders of tomorrow. We therefore ask the youth to continue to bring inspiration through art and use that as a platform to keep the Philippines moving forward,” said PSPC President and CEO Cesar Romero.

Participants can choose from various art categories that include Oil/Acrylic, Watercolor, Sculpture, and Digital Fine Arts.

Shell's NSAC, which last year saw the participation of 1,500 art hopefuls, has been an enabler of artists to showcase their talent and vision, producing established artists like National Artists Jose Joya, expressionist painter Ang Kiukok, applied sculpture practitioner Leeroy New, realistic oil painter Ivan Roxas, and National Artist Benedicto "BenCab" Cabrera.

Second prize: P40,000 cash, a limited Shell NSAC shirt and jacket, a silver medal, and a plaque
