Updated: Apr 30
Our fellow kababayans have won big in the Visual Arts Center competition in line with the campaign to prevent the spread of coronavirus. The objectives of the competition are to educate the community about the seriousness of the ongoing global pandemic and contribute to limiting its spread; to highlight the role of art and its importance in raising awareness in times of crises; and to raise the slogan "Stay Home" and invest time to spread art as well as to pave the way for everyone to produce creative ideas, practice art at home, and participate in the awareness campaign.
Two Filipino artists were able to grab the top spot for “A Drawing From Every Home.” Michael Conjusta, a 41-year old artist from the Philippines, won first prize in the Adult Category. As the amazing artist that he is, he uses and experiments with various art mediums and even paints murals and interior walls all over Doha. For the Young Category of the same competition, Jasmine Camille Caday, a 15-year old Grade 9 student from the Philippine International School Qatar (PISQ), also got first place. She is an art enthusiast who has been actively joining different art contests and was once hailed Grand Winner in the Teens Division Arts Drawing Kulinarya Qatar.
