GSIS announces start of National Art Competition 2024

Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) announces the start of the 19th GSIS National Art Competition 2024. Now on its 19th year, the contest is one of the largest and longest-running art competitions in the country.

The competition has three categories, namely, representational; nonrepresentational (abstract); and sculpture category. The GSIS will be giving P50,000 – P500,000 cash prizes for winning entries. Finalists will take home a cash prize of P7,500.

With Bagong Pilipinas as theme for the representational category, the GSIS National Competition 2024 aligns with the development plan of the administration which aims to foster a nurturing environment for Filipino artists, calling on them to continuously create, innovate and excel in their fields.

“In the GSIS pursuit to celebrate Filipino artistry, this year’s competition highlights how art can be thought provoking and influential in shaping our vision for the future of the Filipino people,” GSIS President and General Manager Wick Veloso said.

Eligible participants, aged 18 and above, may submit one original artwork in one category only. All interested participants must adhere to the mechanics and regulations posted on the GSIS website (www.gsis.gov.ph).
